How will you learn?

This course combines face-to-face and online activities in a seamless and complementary flow of learning.

Prior to joining us on the day, you’ll be enrolled on to our bespoke Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where we encourage you to access a range of pre-reading activities prior to attending the face-to-face session. Within this suite of resources we ask you to complete a short self-assessment to help us tailor the face-to-face session to your existing knowledge and skills.

During the face-to-face component of the course, you’ll have the opportunity to further deepen your learning by asking questions of our experienced faculty who will be supervising you as you practice the seldinger chest drain insertion technique on one of our clinical skills manikins.

Once you have successfully completed all components of the course you will be issued with a Directly Observed Procedures (DOPS) certificate and certificate of attendance - downloadable via our VLE to add to your ePortfolio or use as evidence in your ARCP.
