What is Vocal Health First Aid?
Every theatre company and educational establishment in the UK is required by law to have a qualified first aider and to train their staff in safeguarding. With the rising need for Mental Health First Aid training, we suggest that on a similar level, Vocal Health First Aid is included as a routine qualification within these institutions.
Who is it for?
How does the course work?
Cost of registration £55
When you sign in to our online learning platform, you will be guided through the 34 short films that make up the 6 modules of the course content. You can watch these films in your own time and there are downloadable PDFs of all the slides for you to keep and make notes.
You only have 30 days to complete the course from signing up, but you can navigate this journey at your own pace within this time frame, signing back in with your own username and password each time. There are approximately 9 hours of film content.
How do I get certified as a Vocal Health First Aider?
Cost of assessment £45
At the end of the 34 films is a short series of questions for you to answer. If you score more than 65% as correct on the answers, you will be invited to register for an assessment. This is a 20-minute informal chat with one of the VRS teachers. If you score less than 65% correct, you can re-join at the start of the process for no extra charge for one final progression. If you fail a second time, unfortunately you will have to purchase and resit the course again.
