Course Changes in Response to COVID-19

To maintain appropriate social distancing throughout the course the  following changes have been made

  • Class sizes have been reduced to a maximum of 6 people.

Sit to stand and stand to sit transfers have been removed as a practical assessment, however a demonstration of how to perform this is online, as part of the theory, and is demonstrated by the instructor during the class. Students are not required to practice or demonstrate this type of transfer.

Manikins are used to simulate the patient in slide sheet use and demonstration.

Hoist transfers are completed by a individual rather than a team approach.

All Equipment is disinfected and washed after each course.

All students are required to wash hands and wear disposable gloves.

Bag Valve Masks (BVM’s) are used to simulate rescue breathes in the CPR course.

As this course is a requirement for some front line healthcare roles we ask that you only book in if it is a requirement of your job or you are a

student who is about to go on placement.
