Level 2, Anaphylaxis Training – Half-Day Course

Course overview

Anaphylaxis training is a matter of life and death

Anaphylaxis is a rapid, life-threatening overreaction by the body’s immune system to a trigger. Common triggers are medications, seafood, nuts, and dairy. The list is not exhaustive. 

The only lifesaving treatment that can be given to a person is Adrenaline injected into the person’s thigh, without delay.


Training 999 provides practical onsite First Aid to schools, groups, and healthcare professionals.

Training via E-Learning is not appropriate for those who need to respond to an emergency such as school teachers, nursery staff and medical professionals. On-line training does not equip you with the practical skills required and Regulators such as the Department for Health DO Not allow E-learning in place of Practical Training.

You need to have an adrenaline pen if there is any risk of risk of anaphylaxis in your workplace. We provide practical training on all three types of Adrenaline Pens for shock.

  • The School Held Adrenaline Auto-Injectors and Salbutamol Inhalers SHOULD only be used on KNOWN children with allergies or who suffer from anaphylactic reactions or Asthma when their own medication is unavailable.

Blended Learning

For some of our courses, we offer blended learning.

Blended learning offers a more flexible option for the delivery of our courses. Take part in your training online, reducing your time in the classroom. This also means that less time is lost to travel. This allows you to study first aid theory at your own pace. The practical modules are then delivered in the classroom, face-to-face with one of our trainers.
