The Basic PICC Qualification Training program is designed for those healthcare professionals who are at the beginning stages of learning PICC insertions.

This is our basic level of training using the Modified Seldinger Technique and is designed to help you move right into PICC insertions using Ultrasound. This course is best used in conjunction with our basic ultrasound training courses, including: Understanding the Basics of Ultrasound, Step by Step Ultrasound, Ultrasound Guided PICC Tips & Tricks and Inserting PICCs with Ultrasound Training program.

The Basic PICC Qualification Training program provides all the tools necessary to become qualified to place PICCs including:

1. Class lecture/instruction
2. Written manual
3. Post test
4. Competency checklist
5. Log book (free download)
6. Continuing Education

The lecture/video part of the program includes an actual insertion, from patient education to final pressure dressing on completed insertion. Review each section in the video, then read the corresponding section in the manual. Once you have finished watching the video and studying the manual, complete the 50-question post test. After successful completion of the post test, you will perform a simulated insertion for your supervisor. Your supervisor (someone who is PICC qualified, or a physician) checks you off on the competency checklist provided and verifies that you performed all steps adequately.

At this point, you are ready to perform supervised live insertions at your facility with a qualified PICC inserter. There is no specific required number of supervised insertions (we recommend a minimum of five). Perform as many supervised insertions as necessary until the inserter and the supervisor feel comfortable with the inserter`s abilities. This should be consistent with the credentialing policies of your facility.

This program includes a manual which can be downloaded/printed for future reference. Successful completion of the post-test with a score of 80% or higher is necessary to receive continuing education credits for this program.


Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Provide a definition of PICC and discuss the indications and contraindications for PICC use
2. Identify veins of upper arm and chest; explain vein selection based on vessel health preservation
3. Present brief overview of ultrasound scanning for assesment
4. Provide detailed, step-by-step insertion procedure instructions including infection prevention
5. Review common complications with PICC´s, how to prevent them and what to do if a complication is suspected
6. Describe daily care and maintenance procedures for optimal PICC function
7. Review legal aspects of intravenous therapy and PICC´s
