This is a combination of face to face and online pre-course reading and practical and knowledge assessments.

  • The face to face component will be started and completed in one session. The pre-course reading and online pre-course assessment can be completed in the student’s own time but needs to be completed prior to the face to face component. It is anticipated this will take approx. 10 hours however this will depend on the student’s experience and familiarity with the content. The unit involves theoretical and practical components which are witnessed and assessed by an assessor. Due to the content and nature of the unit it will involve numerous physical activities candidates will be required to undertake.
