What does this course teach?

Rapid, highly effective, compliance for small businesses. This course gives you an undiluted coverage of the syllabus outlined. Learning compression, a feature of eLearning little understood by many in this industry allows learning time to be shortened from a classroom setting. This is a well established and well researched phenomenon.

This online course is designed for smaller workplaces, where a risk assessment concludes that an Appointed Person is required to take charge in the event of an illness or accident. Whilst not a mandatory part of the course we have added our Basic Life Support/CPR module to contribute to knowledge in this area. We encourage all of our learners to have hands on practice with a manikin in line with prevailing national guidelines.
