This course runs in two parts, in order to be fully qualified you must ensure both the online and face-to-face part of the course are completed.
Part 1: Online
This part of the course is self-directed and is expected to take a day to complete. You can complete the modules at your own pace in your own environment providing you the flexibility you need. The online training must be completed within the 6 weeks prior to your face to face training.
Part 2: Face-to-face
During this day you will be in a small group with fellow blended course mates. The day will be led by a specialist trainer who will teach you about the essential lifesaving skills required for your qualification. Throughout the day you will take part in small group activities, practicing essential lifesaving skills and have the chance to ask your trainer any questions. You will also complete a small number of practical and written assessments, this will include assessment on your online training topics. Please note that any group or practical activities will take place with social distancing measures in place.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
