Medication Administration Training: Severe Allergies/Anaphylaxis ONLY

Course Number
Children in schools, camps, child care and other community settings may need to receive prescribed, over-the-counter and emergency medications. Teachers, assistant teachers, administrative staff, early childhood professionals, and other personnel may need to administer these medications. This course is for all unlicensed assistive personnel (UAPs) who will be responsible for administering allergy medications. 

This online course alone does not allow UAPs to administer medications. This is only Part I of a two-part course. UAPs will need to attend a Part II, face-to-face training to demonstrate competency. More information is available in the Read Me First document.

Note: If you will be administering oral, topical, asthma and epinephrine to children, you need to take Medication Administration Training, Part 1.
By the end of this course, learners will be able to
  • Recognize the common causes, symptoms and treatments for allergic reactions
  • Identify specific interventions for an individualized health care plan of a child with allergies
  • Describe the proper procedures for storing, documenting and administering allergy medications, including epinephrine via an auto-injector
  • Recognize medication incidents and how to avoid them
  • Recognize when a child is in need of emergency care and what steps to take in that situation
