Re-training for Registered Centres
Provision of the online yellow fever training package is free of charge and can be accessed and worked through when convenient; it should take no more than 3 hours and need not be completed in one session.
The doctor who is registered as responsible for the YFVC must fill in and return a Confirmation of Completion form, stating the name of the person who has undertaken the training and confirming that training has been completed by the due date.
Completed forms should either be posted, faxed or emailed to:
Travel Health (Yellow Fever)
Health Protection Scotland
NHS National Services Scotland
5 Cadogan Street
Fax: 0141 300 1170
Information and an application form for face-to-face training is available on the Training for New Centres page.
The online training is produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, USA. Health Protection Scotland (HPS) has reviewed this resource and find it appropriate for use by Scottish YFVC’s. HPS has compiled accompanying documentation highlighting any minor differences between US recommendations and UK recommendations, although there are very few.
