Online Component

There is a pre-course compulsory ALSG VLE online MCQ, if you arrive for the face to face component of the course WITHOUT completing your VLE your options are:

✅ Go home. (no HMIMMS cert, no observer’s cert, no CPD/CEU credits. You will get a receipt of payment but not successful completion)

✅ Stay and observe. (no HMIMMS cert. You will get an observer’s cert and CPD/CEU credits only if you stay for the full 2 days. You will get a receipt of payment but not successful completion)
