About ASCIA food allergy e-training

ASCIA food allergy e-training has been developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) to provide ready access to reliable food allergy education for dietitians and other health professionals throughout Australia and New Zealand, at no charge.

Development of ASCIA food allergy e-training has included an extensive review process which involved ASCIA members as well as representatives from key stakeholder organisations throughout Australasia.

Whilst a Certificate of Completion for ASCIA food allergy e-training can be provided as proof that training has been successfully completed, the certificate is not a qualification as ASCIA is not an accrediting body.

ASCIA food allergy e-training is not a train the trainer course, which needs to be completed through a face to face train the trainer course.

ASCIA food allergy e-training contains links to other websites. These linked websites are not under the control of ASCIA and inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement of the linked website by ASCIA.

Any inquiries regarding ASCIA food allergy e-training emailed to projects@allergy.org.au

Due to the potential number of inquiries a contact telephone number is not available.
