E-Learning Emergency First Aid course

Introduction Introduction

New E-Learning Emergency First Aid at Work module

Our e-learning module combines clear First Aid information with relevant videos and illustrations. Each section is presented in an easy to read on-screen format. Once students have read each section, they are offered a small multi-choice questionnaire to prove that learning has taken place. If they answer all questions correctly, they are then able to move forward to the next section. Once they have completed all the sections and answered all questions correctly, they will be notified and they can then move on to a practical First Aid skills session.
