Changes to Immunisation training requirements in 2017
From 01 January 2017 the Northern Territory (NT) About Giving Vaccine Course will no longer be available.
Registered nurses, midwives and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners who need to complete immunisation training are advised to complete the South Australian (SA) online course titled 'Understanding Vaccines and National Immunisation Program' or another approved interstate course.
The NT Upskilling Course is available to vaccine providers who have completed a recognised vaccination course or upskilling course in the last 3 years. Upskill courses need to be completed at least every 3 years.
Please go the government-training calendar.
Vaccine Providers who completed vaccine training or an upskill course greater than 3 years ago are advised to complete a full course, either the South Australian online course or a recognised interstate vaccination education course.
