Yellow fever eLearning alone

Choose this option if you:

  • Have undertaken previous NaTHNaC Yellow Fever (YF) training (classroom or previous YF eLearning).
  • Work in a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre (YFVC) where one or more health professionals have undertaken classroom training as part of the training requirement under the Conditions of Designation and you wish to undertake training without a Virtual Classroom (VC) component [note: for new YFVC, eLearning followed by VC workshop is required and/or those new to YF the option with VC is recommended].   

About this option

An interactive learning experience which will update and/or refresh your knowledge and understanding of the epidemiology of YF, International Health Regulations (IHR) and the vaccine. You will work through travel health scenarios which illustrate some of the challenges relating to YF risk assessment. There is a mandatory short test which must be successfully completed consisting of a series of multiple choice questions which are related to the learning outcomes of this course.

Learning Outcomes: eLearning

eLearning (estimated 90 minutes to complete) - time to complete can be used as CPD hours. After completing the online eLearning modules you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the YF disease, risk areas and mode of transmission.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of YF vaccination certificate requirements and YF vaccination recommendation for travellers.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the safe use and storage of YF vaccine.

Specific learning outcomes for each module are given within the eLearning training.

About the completion test

At the end of the eLearning:

  • You are required to complete 16 questions selected randomly from a question bank.
  • You have unlimited attempts to successfully complete the test within an enrolment period of 28 days (note: progress is not saved within modules or test).
  • A personal certificate of completion will be generated when the pass mark is achieved. This certificate belongs to the person who completes the test, and is valid for 2 years.
  • Please refer to Conditions of Designation for training requirements related to designated YFVC.

Please note: As of May 2021, the certificate requirements for Nigeria have been updated – some videos and scenarios in Module 3 and 4 use Nigeria as example. Edits to these modules will be made in due course.

Also we are in the process of loading a series of NaTHNaC yellow fever vaccination recommendation maps to TravelHealthPro. These maps illustrate the WHO recommendations, but have a different colour scheme. The NaTHNaC maps will eventually replace the maps currently shown in this e-learning.
