Training

Initial training

All staff involved in delivery of intensive smoking cessation support must have received training to national standards for smoking cessation training. This is achieved through completing the NCSCT Online Training and Assessment programme for stop smoking practitioners as well as attending a one day face to face training commissioned by Public Health Warwickshire.

We also recommend colleagues complete the NCSCT training module on very brief advice on smoking (VBA).

New training

We are pleased to announce new dates for Level 1 and Level 2 smoking cessation training. Places available on a first come first served basis.

New training dates available for Varenicline (CHAMPIX) PGD training.

Any training enquiries, please contact samthomas@warwickshire.gov.uk or tel 01926 742392

Refresher training

Stop smoking practitioners have to refresh their training every 2 years as per the specification.

They can do this by completing the NCSCT Online Training and Assessment programme for stop smoking practitioners (especially for those staff who originally attended the 2 day face to face training course)

Alternatively, practitioners may also attend a one day face to face training course to refresh their skills.
