Through the LMS, the student accesses information for all the units of competency, submits the assessments tasks (except where a practical component is required to be completed in a Clinical Intensive Workshop and/or Clinical Placement as per the unit of competency), including evidence of Clinical Placements (e.g., completed logbooks), trainer and assessor feedback on the assessment submission and completion.

Phase 2: Face to Face Clinical Intensive Workshops incorporate live lectures, practical hands-on training, simulated emergency training scenarios, patient transportation, written and practical assessments as per the requirements of the units of competency. Clinical Intensive Workshops are structured in a manner that allows students an opportunity to apply the knowledge and theory gained into practice. Before attending the Clinical Workshops, students will be required to complete, submit and achieve a satisfactory result in some of the units of competency. This is to ensure students have a sound knowledge of the fundamental concepts when attending the Clinical Intensive Workshops.

Detailed information is provided to students upon enrolment through Heed Health Education’s LMS.

Phase 3: Clinical Placements will be required for hands-on supervised learning and practical experience in real-life emergency situations. Clinical Placements can begin as soon as the student has completed their first set of Clinical Intensive Workshops with Heed Health Education satisfactorily. Clinical Placements continue throughout the duration of the course. A supervised Clinical Placement must be logged for each student for a minimum of 160 hours when completing HLT51020 Diploma of Emergency Health Care qualification.
