Issue a Registration

When a health worker who has completed a training program applies for registration, the registration application should be recorded in the system and a registration number generated. At the time of registration, the health worker is issued a registration number, which is unique and serves as the person's main identification number. If a person is registered to practice in more than one cadre, the person should receive a unique registration number for each cadre. Registrations can only be recorded by Registration Supervisors or Data Operations Managers (not by Records Officers).

  1. In the person's record click Training Information in the side menu to jump to the "Training Information" section.
  2. Click Update Training/Registrations/Licenses beside the appropriate training program.
