Accreditation of Immunisation Education Program

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council was requested by the Commonwealth Department of Health to establish a single point of entry for immunisation education provider courses seeking to be accredited against the National Immunisation Education Framework for Health Professionals (The Framework). The ANMAC Board has established a separate entity, Health Education Services Australia (HESA), to separate ANMAC’s role in providing the accreditation functions under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (2009) from services provided to other entities.

HESA will undertake the accreditation of immunisation education programs as requested by education providers that are seeking to be accredited against the Framework. A central national register of accredited immunisation education programs will be maintained on the HESA website.

Nationally agreed program standards were developed through a robust consultation process with the ANMAC, the Department of Health, the Australian Pharmacy Council, and state and territory health government representatives and relate to curriculum design, assessment, program management, resourcing and evaluation. Assessment against these standards will result in accreditation of a program that may lead to mutual recognition of immunisation education programs across all states and territories.

Please note that states and territories may require successful applicants to undertake further competencies.
