The structured online programme includes interactive exercises, audio narration throughout, videos, a 3D hazard spotting exercise, downloadable study text and practice assessments. You have one year to complete the course and assessments.


Students join via the web using a PC, laptop or tablet. The course is run using Zoom, but students don’t need to download any software. Throughout the course, students can see and interact with the tutor and with each other.

The examination and workplace-based assignment are taken online.

At a training centre

The three-day course is delivered in a well-equipped training centre. Students are immersed in a realistic workplace scenario and are faced with a series of team challenges. The student-centred nature of the exercise allows learners to draw on existing knowledge and instincts. The tutor acts as facilitator and adviser, rather than ‘lecturer’.
