2+1 Blended FAW

We know it can be difficult to schedule 3 consecutive days off for your staff. Since COVID it has only become harder and many people are uncomfortable sitting in a room with their colleagues for three days. 


Six years ago, our director, Stuart Marshall was involved in the HSE subcommittee that looked at eLearning in First Aid and we have been running FAW courses with 1 day eLearning and 2 days classroom ever since.


However, during lockdown, it became clear we needed to do better than this. We calculated how much time spent in the classroom is practical and how much is theory. It turned out, the practical was less than a day.

Now, with our blended 2+1 first aid course, theory is taught as eLearning, allowing students to learn at their own pace in spare moments at work, followed by only one full day off for an intensive practical. As far as we are aware this flexibility is only offered by Marlin Training. No other provider teaches like this!

FAW

The online feature was the best I have seen. I have found that I have remembered First Aid procedures much better via the website and multiple videos. This has been the best First Aid course I have been on.

The tutor was very insightful with his knowledge of the subject and made it entertaining as well as easy to learn. The online learning in the lead up made prior elements easy to digest.

I thought the blended learning aspect of the course was very effective, and made me take in more information than other training sessions I've attended that were purely practical. Taking information in at my own pace allowed me to focus longer on areas where I didn't quite understand something or knew I would require practice later on.
