ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses for schools and children's education/care (cec) have been developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA), the peak professional body in Australasia for allergy and clinical immunology.

These courses were first developed by ASCIA in 2010, to provide ready access to reliable and consistent anaphylaxis education throughout Australia and New Zealand, at no charge.

Development and regular updating of ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training requires extensive review and consultation with ASCIA members as well as representatives from schools, ecec services, education departments, health departments and patient support organisations throughout Australasia.
