Our Anaphylaxis Awareness Level 2 (VTQ) course covers how to recognise and respond to an anaphylactic reaction.  We look at the use of EpiPen, Jext and Emerade auto-injectors to make sure staff are happy with the differences and how to administer them should they be needed.  We also look at how to make sure the medication is stored properly and ready to be used if needed.

This is key training for any staff working with children who have anaphylaxis or those staff that lead First Aid in your school.

Unlike many other anaphylaxis training sessions, our certificate is valid for 3 years saving valuable staff CPD training time.  We can also bolt this session on to some of our other courses and dual-certify to make your training session a very efficient use of time and resources!
