STI Foundation Fundamental competency is a workplace-based training package to train and assess the competence of healthcare professionals in community/primary care settings as well as sexual health clinics to assess patients who present without symptoms but need a sexual history and risk assessment.
STI Foundation Fundamental Registration:
• Sexual history (risk assessment)
• Sexual Health Promotion
• Giving a positive chlamydia result
• HIV Testing
• Partner Notification
You do not need to be registered on the STI Foundation Fundamental programme to undertake the e-learning. It is highly recommended that you complete 50% of the e-learning.
The STI Foundation Fundamental Competency training and assessment pathway should be completed within 6 weeks of the date of the first assessment. On successful completion of the training and assessment programme, a Certificate of STI Foundation Fundamental Competency is awarded. The Certificate needs to be revalidated every five years.
