management training is accredited training that includes information
about allergies and anaphylaxis, recognising signs and symptoms,
managing and treating an allergic reaction (including administration of
an EpiPen® and the AnaPen®) and minimising the risk of exposure to
allergens in children’s services.
The course on offer, First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis (22099VIC, formerly known as 21659VIC), is recognised by the Victorian Government for the purpose of the Children’s Services Regulations 1998.
The course runs for 3.0 hours, usually on a Sunday afternoon after
the level 2 first aid course. It costs $80 and is never cancelled, even
if you are the only person in the class! It includes the firing-off of
a real epi-pen so that participants can get a really good understanding
of the correct procedures and the equipment involved.
