Deliver a successful immunisation service in your community pharmacy

Immunisation Training Program

PSA immunisation training is intended to provide registered pharmacists, who meet the pre-requisite requirements, with the knowledge and skills to establish and deliver a successful immunisation service, including administration of injections.

Manage the delivery and administration of injections and immunisations (APPIMM806A) is based on the training program used to successfully train pharmacists worldwide and in the Queensland Pharmacy Immunisation Pilot. Over 2,300 pharmacists have now completed the PSA training and have successfully vaccinated more than 12,000 people across Australia.

PSA immunisation training has been accredited as a CPD activity, is recognised under the Australian Vocational Education and Training sector and is nationally accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). It is also recognised as a training program for immunisers by all state and territory health departments.

Completion of this course enables you to receive one unit in the Graduate Diploma of Applied Pharmacy Practice (10373NAT).
