Course Dates News

Our next 2 day course is in Edinburgh is on the 29th and 30th of August. This course is fully booked and has a waiting list for places but we do have spaces on our 2 day course in Glasgow on the 14th &15th December.   Our 2 day course is aimed at those new to travel health or wishing to consolidate their existing knowledge and is suitable for nurses, doctors and pharmacists.  The course is very much delivered in a practical, ‘teach you what you need to know’ way, by speakers that have many years experience working in travel clinics and teaching students.

Our next TREC Further is on the 6th December.  The TREC Further day is for those of you that have attended one of our two day courses and attending the day is the ideal way to attend an annual travel update as recommended in the RCN Travel Health Competence Document. 

Our immunisation update for those of you that have already undertaken immunisation training and require an annual update in line with the National Minimum Standards,  will run on the 6th September in Glasgow.  If you only require an update in CPR and anaphylaxis then there is the option to attend a half day for refreshing these skills.  If you have alternative arrangements for an annual CPR training, there is the option where you can elect to come on a half day course which will provide an update on immunisations and the topics surrounding this. Please see our website or click on the above links for more information.

Not all travel courses are created equal and our TREC two day course very much takes a ‘common sense’ approach to seeing travellers and covers the essential topics that you need to carry out a travel consultation. It is worth mentioning that whilst our speakers have been involved in travel medicine education for many years, they continue to see and advise travellers within travel clinics and bring this practical, hands on approach to the course. Fifteen years after TREC started, we still believe this is a hugely important part of the course and is echoed in the feedback we get from those of you that have attended the course
