Online First Aid Course (TOOL)

First aid has traditionally been taught in a classroom style but at Triple One Care we know that people learn in different ways and at different speeds. This course has been designed so that you can complete it at your own pace, in your own time. Not only will you learn more effectively but you will also have more fun learning.

The course has two components:

1. A first aid theory "Online" Component (2-4 hours online)
2. A first aid practical and assessment Component (4 hours practical)
 


The online course addresses the theory and works very simply. There are seven modules and at the beginning of each is a teaching session. Read through the information and when you are familiar with it you are ready to complete the assessment. With the exception of the first two modules the initial questions are based on how you would respond to real life first aid situations. You have to get them all correct but do not worry, if you make a mistake you are allowed to try again (remember our goal is to help you learn).

After the scenario questions you will be presented with a number of random questions (multiple choice, true/false etc) based on the module you have just studied. You need to get 80% correct to pass the module and move onto the next - if you do not achieve this, then you will be asked to start the whole module again. After you have completed all seven modules there is a final assessment which tests you on the entire course and also has an 80% pass mark.

The theory will take approx. 4 hours to complete, depending on knowledge base but remember - you do not have to do the theory all in one go (a module a day is probably the fastest you would want to complete to maximise your learning). You can come and go as you please with this theory component so if you are interrupted just log out and log back in when you have more time.

You must complete the theory online course before you can participate in the practical course. We recommend that you aim to finish it at least a week before your practical training session. The whole course must not take longer than 3 months. If you have any questions while working on the course you can e-mail us using the contacts screen and we will endeavour to answer you within 24 hours.

At the practical session you will meet with a Triple One Care trainer who will be able to answer any questions that you have as a result of the theory course (remember to write them down as you think of them!) and will then demonstrate a number of techniques - stable side position, bandaging, trauma management and resuscitation. Following the successful completion of both components you will be a qualified first aider. First aid is a serious subject but learning can be (and should be) fun and rewarding - enjoy the modules, share the knowledge with your family and friends and benefit from the increased confidence that the course will give you. All the best, and good luck.
