ERS Certified Training Programmes

Postgraduate master level

Why choose an ERS Training Programme?

ERS Training Programmes facilitate a more structured approach to acquiring new clinical skills. There is significant need for this type of learning because the success of clinical procedures often depends on the individual skill level of the health professional. Successful completion of your chosen programme will result in certification in the field and enable you to apply your improved clinical skills to enhance care and improve patient outcomes.

What are the options?

There are currently three certified, multiple-module ERS Training Programmes available. Each of these programmes has set learning outcomes based on the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to competently complete a skill in the clinical setting. An ERS Training Programme must be completed within a 3-year period.
