Course duration

According to the specification the course is a minimum of 6 hours. We feel that in our experience this is not necessarily long enough without it feeling like a route march. In an ideal world we would look to run this over two days (12 hours) however we are also aware of the financial constraints that voluntary organisations face. We have therefore come up with the following options:

6 hours course over 1 day as per the specification. This will deliver the course but learners may well feel that it was quite a fast pace and that not everything was taken on board.

7 hours course over 1 day. This will deliver exactly the same content but over 7 hours, allowing for more practice and more questions. We do not charge extra for this.

8 hours course over 1 day. This is exactly the same as the 7 hour course plus an extra hour to run some scenarios to allow skill practice.

We don’t deliver this course over more than one day. The syllabus is tight enough and the time lost stopping and starting eats into the teaching time too much.

Allow an extra hour for breaks and lunch
