HSE geis3 2018 States: Some training providers offer training that is a mix of e-learning and face to face. This is known as blended learning and is an accepted means by which workplace first-aid training can be delivered. It is important that you conduct the necessary additional checks (due diligence) to decide if this method is suitable. This means you should make sure you are satisfied that:
■■ the individual being trained knows how to use the technology that delivers the training;
■■ the training provider has an adequate means of supporting the individual during their training;
■■ the training provider has a robust system in place to prevent identity fraud;
■■ sufficient time is allocated to classroom-based learning and assessment of the practical elements of the syllabus. HSE strongly recommends that practical elements of the course should be assessed by direct observation, to ensure the competence of candidates;
■■ the provider has an appropriate means of assessing the e-learning component of the training.
Employers should also ensure they are complying with regulation 13 of the Health and Safety Management Regulations 1999, which has a requirement to ensure adequate time is set aside during the working day to undertake any first-aid training employees receive.
SMP First Aid Hub follows the HSE guidelines and provides you with the following information to assist with your additional checks (due diligence) and help you to make the right choice of training.
