How Many People Can Use the Course?

With your purchase, you will receive a singular licence once the course has been completed. This course is assigned under the single user, which can be used repeatedly within one month.

However, if it is under a company account, then the account has 12 months, with one user per licence per course. Once the activation code has been activated, there is no reason why you can't repeatedly activate the course under that singular account.

How Long Does the Course Last?

This Health and Care Online Health and Safety Training Course lasts for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, but can depend on the individual user.

Is this Course Continual Professional Development Accredited?

Health and Care's certified and approved online training solutions help you to comply with your mandatory health and safety training requirements. Most of our online health and safety courses are continual professional development (CPD) accredited, which means that on successful completion, 1 hour of CPD credit will be provided in addition to a certificate of achievement.

What Is CPD?

CPD is the aim of professionals to develop their skills and enhance their abilities through various workshops and online courses. Rather than being passive learners, those committed to being CPD-compliant develop as proactive individuals.

How Is the Course Assessed?

There is a simple test at the end of each course tutorial. However, some courses such as DSE or Manual Handling have a separate Risk Assessment Module. In order to complete the risk assessment module, simply click on the separate ‘Risk Assessment’ button within the course.

If you have completed a tutorial and test paper, you will be given the option to print your certificate out if you have passed your course test paper. Simply print the certificate and keep for your records.
