The National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training (NCSCT) supports the delivery of effective evidence-based tobacco control programmes and smoking cessation interventions provided by local stop smoking services.
Stop Smoking Practitioner training and assessment is available:
The training programme is built around evidence-based behaviour change techniques that provide an understanding of the factors involved in smoking and smoking cessation, and include practical interventions that we know will make a significant difference to the chances of your clients becoming permanent ex-smokers.
The training programme has been shown to increase practitioners’ knowledge, develop their skills and lead to improved practice.
The training programme includes all of the information that you need to pass the online assessment. Upon successful completion of the assessment, you will become an NCSCT Certified Stop Smoking Practitioner.
