European Spirometry Driving Licence
The primary aim of the European Spirometry Driving Licence is to set educational standards for the training and certification of spirometry at a European level with the ultimate goal of improving patient care and quality of life for respiratory disease patients. This is due to a survey that was conducted in 2008 by ERS on national spirometry training programmes and availability of training in 14 European countries, that confirmed the clear lack of training opportunities in many countries, with most training taking place on the job.
The aim of the Spirometry HERMES project is to train health professionals to produce high quality spirometry tests and award the European Spirometry Driving License. To reach competence, participants will be required to follow a specific training programme. This training programme is put in place across Europe by the European Spirometry trainers. The ERS spirometry train-the trainer programme is mandatory for those hoping to roll out the European Spirometry Driving Licence in their country. The Spirometry train-the-trainer is delivered annually during the ERS Congress. You will find more information on the spirometry train-the-trainer programme on the ERS HERMES website.
