This practical course will provide participants with valuable skills and knowledge to prepare them for undertaking IV Cannulation competence in their workplace. During the course, the participants actually use the equipment and perform the intravenous cannulation procedure.  At the completion of the course, participants will have their cannulation competency individually assessed on a cannulation ‘model’ arm.
