The Tracheostomy Care training course is designed to educate and enable healthcare professionals to perform tracheostomy care safely and competently.

A certificate of attendance is issued on completion of this course. Using our tracheostomy competency template, competency can be achieved within the workplace and a tracheostomy competency certificate will be distributed.

Please note: Competency must be achieved within the workplace within six months of attending the course. A competency framework is included in this training. Competency is achieved in the workplace following the training. Each procedure needs to be signed off by a qualified, senior member of staff. The completed document can then be used to identify the individuals’ competence.
