It is recommended that those who perform spirometry should complete the ICST/ARTP full certificate in spirometry or the ICST/ARTP foundation certificate in spirometry. Our Spirometry course will prepare you for these certificates.

Spirometry is only useful as a screening technique where uniformity and quality of practice exist. Without a thorough understanding of the principles involved, the methodology, the effects of the disease on lung function and the interpretation of results, it is difficult for practitioners to be confident and competent in practice. Our Spirometry training course will give you this understanding.

GP, Nurse, Registered Healthcare Practitioners, Health Care Assistant

This course will prepare you for the steps necessary to get onto the ARTP Full or Foundation Registers. Application for assessment by the ARTP is the responsibility of the student and will not be undertaken by PCTC at this time.
