Promo video for your websites and social media

4 February 2018 in Featured Articles, Instructor

We have produced an animated promotional video showing what you offer your customers as a ProTrainings centre.  This 1:29 minute short film will help you get the message of all the courses as classroom and video online you can offer. It also shows what extras your students receive the login, video access and downloads etc.

We have put a link that you can use at the top of the marketing section of your dashboard to either embed the video on your website or you can use on emails and social media. Simply click the link and under the video, you will see the “share” option where you can copy the embed code or the direct link. We hope that this will help get the message out that you offer more than other companies and increase your sales.

Once you add this to your website and social media, let us know so that we can share it across our network increasing your promotion of your website and social media accounts. Read the rest of this entry →

Changes to timing instructions on the administration of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior adrenaline auto-injector

6 October 2017 in Featured Articles

The Anaphylaxis Campaign ( ) have reported that Mylan UK has recently received an approval for a variation to the administration of EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior adrenaline auto-injector.

There is no change to the device or the drug (adrenaline); the change is in the instructions for use as outlined below:

·         Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds – this is based on research confirming delivery of adrenaline for 3 seconds is sufficient.

·         Removal of the massage step after the injection – this step has been removed to simplify the process of administering EpiPen® or EpiPen® Junior.

The changes are aimed to improve patient compliance.

It is important to remember that, the effectiveness of the EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior will not be impacted regardless of whether it is held for 3 or 10 seconds.

We expect EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior with the 3 second label to enter pharmacies in the UK from November 2017 onwards. There may still be some EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior with the 10 second label available on the market.

For more information on choosing a course about Anaphylaxis please go to or call 01206 805359 or email
