NEW TRAINING

Course Role Who is it for Course length and type Further information
Spirometry with ARTP GPs, Nurses, Nursing Associates, HCAs, AHPs, Clinical Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians & Physician Associates Those new to spirometry.

 

If you would like to do performing spirometry only you can select to complete the ARTP assessments for performing only (the foundation certificate).

 

Once enrolled learners have 6 month access to the eLearning programme, within these 6 months students can access the monthly Q&A live sessions also.

 

You then have a further 6 months to complete the ARTP assessment.

 

 

Not everyone will need the full 6 months to work through the eLearning – dependant on your level of experience, you may be able to skip over sections and complete it quicker.

 

The 6 months to complete assessment commences when you register after completing the eLearning.

 

Spirometry Refresher with ARTP GPs, Nurses, Nursing Associates, HCAs, AHPs, Clinical Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians & Physician Associates Those experienced in performing or interpreting spirometry and simply need a refresher and the ARTP foundation certificate.

 

Spirometry Refresher includes the ARTP assessments for those who’ve dropped off the register.

 

The training covers a refresher on both performing and interpreting and learners can choose whether they complete the full, foundation (performing) or interpretation ARTP assessments.

 

1.5 hour pre-recorded webinar to watch in your own time.

 

Rewatch as many times as you like over the 6 months.

 

Option to attend the online Q&A monthly sessions for a 6 month period.

 

Once ready to register for the assessment, you then have 6 months to complete.

 

 

Some students may feel confident to complete it quicker – you may simply watch the webinar once, attend one Q&A session and then feel ready for assessment.

 

 

Spirometry Update GPs, Nurses, Nursing Associates, HCAs, AHPs, Clinical Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians & Physician Associates Those already on the ARTP Register and need to ensure that you have the most up to date knowledge around spirometry before you apply for Spirometry Recertification.

 

1.5 hour pre-recorded webinar to watch in your own time.
