This course is for both Full and Refresher participants. The duration cannot be further compressed for Refresher participants. Previously, the Refresher course (0.5- day) was shorter than the Full course (1-day) due a shorter duration of time spent on the theory component. As all theory components are done online now via blended learning, both Full and Refresher participants will need to attend the 1-day session together to complete the practical components and assessments.
