Training & Resources
Training is important so that teachers and school representatives understand and can manage students with epilepsy, and where required, can apply medication. Training should be completed every two years.
School teachers and representatives should be trained every two years. You can use this opportunity to combine training with raising awareness activities at your school.
Listed below are the different courses that teachers, school nurses, or parents can do. For schools, you will often complete organisational enrolments so that more than one person can be trained at once. There is also the option to do individual enrolments.
Training is delivered online or face to face. Please note that the course “Administration of Emergency Medication – Part 2 Practical” is only delivered face to face or via an online webinar.
It will be more expensive for face to face training and fees may differ according to your location. If you want face to face training, ring the Epilepsy National Helpline on 1300 852 853 and you will be directed to your State office.
