We have adapted our First-aid Qualification Assessor and IQA Training event into an online webinar. 

The CPD certificate gained by completing our First-aid Qualification Assessor and IQA Training also enables an individual with occupational knowledge and proven competence in first aid to fulfil the role of an assessor and internal quality assurer (IQA) for regulated first-aid qualifications.

The training will be split into two online webinar sessions, with time in between for attendees to complete and submit individual IQA exercises to Highfield and allow for a short comfort break.

Session 1

09:00 - Expected finish time 12:00 

Completion of individual IQA exercises & comfort break

Session 2

15:00 - Expected finish time 16:00 

This training is adapted from our face-to-face First-aid Qualification Assessor and IQA Training event, and as such, attendees are expected to be available from 09:00-16:00 (with an approximate 1 hour comfort break) to be eligible for the 6 CPD points and certificate upon successful completion.
