About The Course

Mersey Port Health Authority provides training to students, qualified EHP’s and other agencies who wish to learn about the varied statutory functions of Port Health.


We aim to provide students with the necessary information they require to complete their work based learning.


We offer 2 separate training days which will cover 2 main statutory functions of Port Health; Imported Food and International Health.  These sessions are run every two weeks on a rotating basis and will cover the following areas:

  • General Overview
  • Ships Sanitations
  • Communicable Disease
  • Vector Control


The sessions will be theory, interactive and practical based.


Whenever possible we will try and accommodate a visit to a Vessel to participate in an Official Inspection.  In cases when this is not possible, a general visit will be conducted. 


Payment for the course must be received prior to the commencement of your visit.  Further information can be found at
