We are pleased to share that access to our online COVID-19 vaccine courses is now open and free, without the need for a user to first enter a package code.
Any health professional can register via our courses and events page (IMAC Covid-19 Courses) to access Covid-19 vaccine courses for free, keeping in mind that this education is in addition to provisional or full vaccinator education required for authorisation to vaccinate.
Open access primarily benefits provisional and authorised vaccinators, who can now freely complete the training at any time without waiting for their employer to nominate them for training.
There is a specific course available for GPs, medical specialists and nurse practitioners that aims to provide you with confidence in their knowledge of the Comirnaty (Pfizer/BioNTech) vaccine, and the ability to answer common concerns and questions raised by patients. For those with prescribing rights who intend to vaccinate, please ensure you have followed the information relating to vaccine preparation and administration. Access to this course is also now freely available through IMAC Learning.
Upon registering for health professional training, you will be required to acknowledge that:
For those accessing non-vaccinator training (eg CIR Administrators to complete the CIR Administrator course), you will be required to acknowledge that:
Currently IMAC generates daily reports sent to Workforce Leads, listing all Learners that have started or completed a Vaccinator or CIR Administrator course. Workforce Leads in DHBs or Health Organisations can use these reports to help identify who in their workforce is ready to prepare for deployment to a vaccination clinic.
Workforce Leads are then responsible for facilitating access to the CIR practice environment upon your completion of the online course, which should happen the day before a vaccinator or CIR administrator starts working at a COVID-19 vaccination site.
Any questions about CIR Classroom access, and CIR onboarding or access should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0800 223 987
