IV Therapy Training for Medical & Dental Assistants

About IV certification for Medical Assistants

Medical assistants and dental assistants are unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP). They mostly work in medical office settings assisting physicians. Regulations for IV therapy by unlicensed assistive personnel vary state by state. Physicians may delegate IV therapy tasks to UAPs, except in those states where it is specifically prohibited. However, prior to delegation of IV therapy related tasks, the UAP needs documented education, training, and competency validations (often referred as IV certification).

Upon completion of this 8-hour hands-on IV training program, attendees learn to insert peripheral IV catheters, prepare and start infusion with an IV fluid, monitor the patient during the infusion, identify potential complications, and discontinue the infusion.

Attendees obtain a certificate of completion. Complete the competency assessment at the facility according to the facility’s policy and procedures.
