You have selected Ears which means you have the option to start your Ear Health learning pathway! The Ear Health learning pathway starts by building your base knowledge with the nationally-accredited online program, Foundations of Ear Health (level 1). You can then continue on with 4 more nationally-accredited Courses (level 2) - options are dependent on your current qualifications, and topics include the ear and hearing health (including wax removal), otitis media, tympanometry and microsuction. Once you hit ‘apply now’ from any of the individual course pages below, you can bundle as many courses as you like. Happy learning!

Under HESA's Framework (a subsidiary of ANMAC), it is a requirement for any Registered Nurse or Midwife seeking authorisation as a nurse immuniser to have completed training that meets the minimum accreditation standards. 

Workplace activity or observed skills practice is a mandatory requirement for this course. 

The observed practice can be completed in a virtual setting or in simulated workplace conditions. 

Workplace practice must be observed by a medical practitioner, practice manager or practice nurse that performs the identified workplace tasks as part of their role.

All workplace observed activities must be completed in accordance with work health and safety standards and infection control policies and procedure.

Workplace activities

Under HESA's Framework (a subsidiary of ANMAC), it is a requirement for any Registered Nurse or Midwife seeking authorisation as a nurse immuniser to have completed training that meets the minimum accreditation standards.

The course delivered by the Benchmarque Group reflects the standards across the four domains, learning outcomes and learning objectives of the National Immunisation Framework for Health Professionals. In some jurisdictions it maybe be a requirement for students seeking authorisation to complete workplace practice.

In response to the COVID-19 and the ongoing challenges for students to undertake clinical practice in a 3rd party workplace, The Benchmarque Group have introduced the option for students to complete either a workplace activity or observed skills practice. The observed practice can be completed in a virtual setting or in simulated workplace conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Continuing professional development is the means by which members of the clinical profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.

The CPD cycle involves reviewing practice, identifying learning needs, planning and participating in relevant learning activities, and reflecting on the value of those activities.

How many CPD hours will I achieve for completing this Program?

As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.

For all other health professionals completing this program, your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements may vary and it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to maintain and register CPD with your professional body. In many instances, your regulatory authority will recognise hours of learning as stated above.

How long do I have to complete the assessment?

12 months. The time is calculated from when a student is provided with online access to their assessment. Within the accessIQ platform, students will be provided an initial 6 months to complete and submit all required assessment activities. Friendly email reminders will be sent to students to ensure an assessment is completed on time. At the completion of the 6 month period, students can request up to a maximum of 2 extensions, each extension being for a period of 90 days. If requesting a second extension, the request must be in writing.

How many times can I submit my assessment?

If you are deemed Not Yet Competent on your first and second assessment submissions, feedback will be provided. It is very important that you read all the feedback provided. The Assessor will have identified any areas where additional evidence is required or any questions that need to be reviewed and resubmitted. If, after 3 unsuccessful submissions, you are unable to demonstrate competency on your assessment, your assessment will be deemed Not Competent. Feedback will be provided to you and what the possible following steps and outcomes are.

What do I receive at the completion of the program?

At the completion of the pathway, successful students will receive a Statement of Attainment for the Course in Immunisation Practice in Primary Healthcare (10754NAT).
