Online courses for immunisation service providers

The Queensland Health Immunisation Program, in collaboration with the Cunningham Centre, has developed a suite of online training courses for immunisation service providers in Queensland.

Overview of all immunisation online courses (PDF, 130kB)

Course 1 Vaccine administration

Course 2 Vaccine management

Course 3 Immunisation data – recording and reporting

Course 4 Catch-up vaccinations

These high-quality online courses are free, self-paced, interactive, and can easily be accessed via the Clinical Skills Development Service website.

The courses are suitable for clinicians as well as non-clinical staff and can be of benefit to anyone involved in directly receipting, administering or managing vaccines regardless of their levels of skill and knowledge.

This includes:

  • immunisation service providers
  • practice staff including practice managers, nurses and admin staff
  • pharmacists
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers
  • immunisation service/program managers.

Upon completion of each course a Certificate of Completion and CPD hours are awarded. The courses are for general education purposes only and do not lead to authorisation as an Immunisation Program Nurse

The new immunisation courses are an important action from the Queensland Health Immunisation Strategy 2017–2022 (PDF, 1.8MB)  which aims to protect the Queensland community from vaccine-preventable diseases, and all immunisation service providers play a critical role in it.

Six immunisation training videos have also been developed by the Immunisation Program for training purposes:
