Whilst we are still in development stages all of our courses are free.
Don’t worry. If you do not achieve the pass grade, you will be invited to retake the test again and you will be prompted to review the course in whole. Learners are allowed to take 3 retests before you are prompted to retake the course again from the very beginning (this is all free of charge).
This depends on which course you are taking as they all have a different amount of units and also different video lengths.
Don’t worry, you do not have to complete a course in one sitting! All courses can be saved at any point and returned to.
Here is a step by step guide through our courses:
- Main video of each unit condition – Follows this sequence describing: The Condition, Possible Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Aims, Help, Treatment or Procedure of the condition, Attention, Summary.
- A transcript of the video
- Audio stream from the video
- An infographic of each unit
- Treatment or Procedure video- video of the Treatment or Procedure only, allowing Learners to skip straight to it
- 2 or 3 multiple choice questions – Which continually assesses learners throughout the course to reinforce learning. These will not stop learners from moving onto the next units, however they must achieve a pass rate of 100% of the overall questions before you can access the final assessment.
After learners have completed step 6 they should progress onto the next unit. If they choose to stop at any stage they are able to save their progress at any time. Once all units have been completed there is a final assessment in the form of another multiple-choice questionnaire of 30 questions. Learners have to achieve a pass rate of 80% to receive a personalised certificate of achievement.
If learners do not achieve the pass grade they will be invited to retake the test and will be prompted to review the course in whole. They do not have to review the whole course again at this stage but if they fail the test 3 times, they will have no choice but to review the whole course. Don’t worry this will be free of charge.
Our online first aid courses suit three of the VARK learning styles:
- Visual – we use easy to follow video lectures and infographics that guide learners stage by stage through each unit (condition, procedure or general information)
- Auditory – in addition to the videos that contain audio, learners can stream audio versions of the videos
- Read – each unit contains a written description along with an online note section to assist with learning
- Kinaesthetic – as our first aid courses are currently only online we are unable to cater for this learning style.
Initially our online first aid courses have been developed for situations involving adults only, which are people over the age of 12 or have reached puberty. We intend to produce online first aid courses for situations involving babies & children in the near future.
