Competency certification for diagnostic spirometry
Our spirometry courses have all been accredited by the CPD certification service. Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements. Competency assessments are included within our course structure, and delegates will receive certification once the assessments are successfully completed. The course content follows ARTP quality assurance standards.
Whilst it is not a requirement of the NMC, or MDU, if delegates wish to be placed on the National Register, which is held by ARTP, our course content will prepare you for this. Further details will be provided during the study day(s).
If you are a CCG, or private company and would like to commission our services, please contact us on [email protected] to discuss your requirements. Discounts are available.
Our spirometry courses are suitable for any health care professional involved in the performance and/or interpretation of spirometry. This includes those working in Primary Care, Secondary Care, Physiologists, technicians and those working in an occupational health setting.
