Event description
By the end of this course attendees will have learnt how to perform spirometry accurately and how to implement the ARTP procedures in practice. They will also be signposted to how to gain accreditation.  However, the course itself does not give ARTP accreditation (entry onto the register of approved practitioners) as this involves an assessment of competency with a practical assessment and portfolio submission that is only possible by applying to the ARTP via their website.

The programme for the day:
9.30 am - Welcome and Introductions: what do you want from the day?
