I want to study the post registration qualification in sedation, but I only practice IV or Inhalation. How do I complete the course?


When completing our Sedation qualification, you will be taught about both IV and Inhalation Sedation. We do this because the NEBDN exam will ask you questions on both types of sedation. If you only have access to one type of sedation and therefore only want to qualify in one area of sedation, you will only need to complete the Practical work on that particular area of sedation. IE, IV or Inhalation. This means that once you have completed your exam, you will be considered as part qualified.




What are the requirements to be able to study the course?


You must be a GDC Registrant.




When will I be expected to complete the coursework?


The coursework will be set on a monthly basis. All coursework must be completed 3 months prior to the exam.
