Course duration

Because each vaccination and immunisation training course is different they vary in length, but typically expect delegates to attend for either one or two full days of training (approx 6 hours per day).

Assessment and certification

The course process consists of continual assessment by the course tutor, case studies, practical scenarios, OSCE's and workbook completion. 

Please note that these courses are not provided on an ‘open course’ basis, but are delivered onsite to organisations. This delivery model allows us to fully tailor the training content and delivery to suit the needs of the attending delegates.

Following the course, delegates are required to receive appropriate mentor supervision in order to support their learning and its practical application in the workplace.

Guardian Angels Training will provide the necessary competency proformas required to ensure safe and evidenced-based clinical practice, allowing the registered provider to ensure mandatory competency assessments are completed correctly.

If you need further advice regarding competency assessments or if you would like our registered nurse trainers to provide onsite competency assessments, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Upon successful completion of your chosen immunisation or vaccination training course, you’ll receive a certificate valid for 2 years from issue.
