Managing immunisation emergencies (new learner)

The managing immunisation emergencies course (MIE) provides the knowledge and skills required to manage potentially life-threatening adverse events immediately following immunisation (AEFI). This course incorporates the HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation unit of competency from the Health Training Package. This unit is recognised nationally within the Australian Qualifications Framework. This course attracts 7 CPD points. Prior to 2011, in conjunction with La Trobe University, this course was required by nurses for accreditation as a nurse provider of immunisation to infants, children and adults by the Department of Health and Human Services, Victoria.

Participants will receive HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation Statement of Attainment upon successful completion.

Course content:

• Identify a nurse immuniser’s emergency response responsibilities

We Don’t Compromise On Our Training


Earlier this year I performed CPR on my husband. I could not believe how quickly I remembered the timing and because I felt so confident I did not panic.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a USI?

The Unique Student Identifier or USI is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that:

  • creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, even from different training organisations
  • will give you access to your training records and transcripts (available in mid 2016)
  • can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
Do I need a USI?

The Student Identifiers Act in 2014 requires that all students enrolled in nationally recognised training provide their Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with their USI. This is applicable to all HLT and VIC units.
