Who is this course for?

Conscious Sedation

This Course is for Hygienists and Therapists new to Conscious Sedation or those requiring a fully accredited conscious sedation course. It is now mandatory for all practitioners new to conscious sedation to undertake an IACSD accredited course followed by a period of mentored cases to gain certification. This course is fully IACSD accredited and covers all your requirements to lead to independent practice for new sedation practitioners. As Hygienists and Therapists you can administer inhalation sedation for your own patients and it is an ideal solution for the treatments you carry out on your anxious patients. You cannot administer Intravenous Sedation but you should understand the theory behind it which is covered in full on this course also.

  • 1. Apply for full package below; this includes a full 2 days supervised practice at your own practice by one of our sedation diploma mentors as well as full assistance in setting up your ordered or current equipment, advice and guidance on maintaining equipment and all the legal and essential aspects of equipment management and care. Essentially everything you need to get going besides ordering the equipment itself.

  • 2. Apply for your own experienced sedation mentor to be approved via the royal college of surgeons to mentor your cases. Your mentor must have completed and have evidence of completion of a postgraduate conscious sedation course as well as evidenced maintenance of CPD. You will need to contact us for an application form for this but the fees associated with it are included in the £699 fee below so there are no additional fees.
