ProTrainings Europe Ltd launches Blended Learning option with Training Qualifications UK

ProTrainings Europe Ltd are the first organisation to launch the new ‘blended’ HSE option for First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work courses.

COLCHESTER, August 07, 2017

ProTrainings Europe Ltd are the first organisation to launch the new ‘blended’ HSE option for First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work courses. Blended learning enables the time spent in classroom training to be reduced, allowing part of the course to be completed online, and using full feature videos. 

ProTrainings have been developing and perfecting their learning platform for over 8 years, therefore the software offered is a proven and winning formula. They specialise in utilising a mix of e-learning, blended and classroom based learning that helps to provide the most effective training solution available.

Following the HSE June 2016 First Aid eBulletin, blended learning is now an accepted means of workplace first aid training. However the necessary checks to decide if blended learning is a suitable method for staff are to be carried out by employers, but it is recommended that centres familiarise themselves with the information in the full eBulletin to ensure that they can offer the most up to date advice and support for their clients. 

The five main points within the eBulletin are:
• You are satisfied that where first aid training comprises of blended learning, it is as effective as exclusively face to face learning;
• 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 identify fraud; and,
• Sufficient time is allocated to classroom based learning and assessment of the practical elements of the syllabus.

So how does it work?
Blended Learning splits a qualification into two modules, an online learning environment and classroom based evaluation with further learning. Once you have completed the blended learning module via the online platform – you will be issued with a ‘Part 1’ certificate. 

You will need to present your certificate to your trainer upon arrival at the classroom based part of the qualification in order to continue and complete your qualification. After both parts of the blended learning have been completed, you will be issued with your TQUK qualification certificate.

On joining forces with Training Qualifications UK Managing Director Andrew Walker said: “We’re excited to be working with ProTrainings to deliver a fantastic and proven blended learning platform to our Approved Centres.’

‘The online learning system is simple and user friendly, and we are confident that centres who wish to utilise our blended learning option will be more than satisfied with the software we have to offer.”

Managing Director of ProTrainings Europe Ltd, Keith Sleightholm said: “
We are delighted to be working with TQUK on the blended workplace first aid courses, our system has been developed over many years to provide a robust e-learning solution, that is designed to engage learners, test and reinforce their knowledge, so that they are ready when they come to you, to complete the second module of their training.
