Professional training for you

Welcome to SIA Academy

Accredited training and support for healthcare professionals who don’t have a specialism in spinal injury.

Welcome to Spinal Injuries Association Academy – where healthcare staff can access a range of practical and theoretical training.

We provide a variety of accredited training for healthcare professionals working in non-specialist settings – from trusts to healthcare organisations. And depending on the course, you could also get insights from staff who are also living with a spinal injury.

At the current time we’re unable to schedule any face-to-face education or training. While that may change soon, we don’t yet know when or how that may be restricted to limit the spread of coronavirus. Please check back here in coming weeks.

Online training

Luckily we can do lots of our training via live virtual education sessions on Zoom, facilitated by members of our team of spinal cord injury nurses.

Please download our education and training flyer or see the links below for more information about our virtual education sessions together with details of courses that we intend to run post-lockdown.

Our cancellation/non-attendance policy applies to all of our training events.
