Welcome to SAIRS 101! We hope this course will help you to have a smooth and enjoyable transition to using SAIRS for the direct entry of your patient data.

SAIRS Training HostThis training consists of online learning modules with explanations, demos and hands-on practice, along with step-by-step Job Aids that you can use during and after the course for further support.

You should do this training individually, not as a group. For the best experience, we suggest that you take a break between modules. Just pause and come back later! After completing each module, you will receive a Certificate of Completion that you can save for your records and show off proudly in your workspace! You do not need to submit these to the SAIRS Team.

You will not have SAIRS access to add vaccines or inventory until after completion of this training. Please notify the SAIRS Team when you’re ready to start direct entry.

The course material is divided by role, so you will take only those modules that are relevant and useful for you. The four roles are:

  • People who only need to view and print records
  • People who also enter and update patient and immunization data, and who create new patients in SAIRS.
  • People who are responsible for vaccine inventory tracking, using Partial Inventory features.
  • And people who are responsible for vaccine inventory tracking, using Full Inventory features.

The training videos that accompany these training modules are temporarily unavailable. Please contact the help desk for additional training needs at 210.207.5071.

NOTE: You will need to have the Flash 10 or higher player to view the online modules. Get the latest Flash player.
