Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is a commonly used respiratory support. The use of the NIV is expanding over time and, but its knowledge and skills are very important for the proper use of this life-saving support. This study aims to evaluate the available evidences for the education and training of NIV. There are no clinical trials examining the impact of education and training of the NIV as the primary objective. However, few studies with indirect evidences, and evidence from a simulation-based training, and some reviews were found. Organized training to increase NIV skills is also limited mostly within few developed countries. Education and training in NIV have the potential to increase knowledge and skills of the staff. The development of organized education and training program in NIV appears to be the need in several types of disciplines and care environments.
