The Respiratory group of the Spanish Paediatric Intensive Care Society (SECIP) over the last eleven years has developed many workshops and courses for clinicians and nurses in order to optimise NIV use among its members. The European NIV Course, delivered by many NIV experts and members of the ESPNIC respiratory group, has been delivered since 2012.

The main objective of this course is to provide a wide knowledge in this technique and also guarantee that attendees achieve appropriate skills to implement it in their own Units.

This course will also provide on-line theoretical basis for NIV care. The main chapters and lectures based in the third edition will be available on-line. The e-learning platform must be read in order to assure that attendees will be able to practice their skills during the course.

Completion of the on-line exam is mandatory to attend the face to face phase. All attendees will receive an attendance certificate, but passing the skills exam and the second on-line exam after the face to face phase is mandatory to obtain a certificate of approval.

By end of the course attendees will be able to select their own best option among of all the materials available, and to develop appropriate protocols adapted to their Hospitals.
