Train the Trainer: Recognition and Management of Anaphylaxis Program (RAMOAP)

Course Description

RAMOAP has been developed by the NSW Anaphylaxis Education Program in conjunction with the NSW Department of Education.

Recognition and Management of Anaphylaxis Program (RAMOAP) is a short, practical skills-based session that NSW government school staff are required to complete annually, complementing the Department’s mandatory ‘Anaphylaxis e-learning’ course which school staff complete every two years.

Trainers employed by Registered Training Organisations awarded a position on the NSW Department of Education panel of approved first aid training providers are invited to enrol in the RAMOAP “Train the Trainer” course. The NSW Anaphylaxis Education Program is the sole provider of this course, and successful completion of this one-day competency-based course is mandatory and the final course before trainers can deliver the RAMOAP sessions in NSW Department of Education schools.
