Description

Allergen Awareness

This course has been designed to comply with the new EU legislation law which came into force in December 2014.

This module will show you how to provide allergy information on pre-packed or unpackaged foods. It will cover what effects allergies may have to the body, considerations of allergies in the factory, How allergenic ingredients should be displayed on a label, Identifying allergens in example of dishes in the restaurant and How food businesses should be providing consumers with allergen information about the non-prepacked food they serve.

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a potentially severe allergic reaction which attacks the immune system. Your whole body is affected, usually within minutes of contact with an allergen but sometimes the reaction can take place hours later. This online training course will develop your knowledge on Anaphylaxis, covering the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of severe allergic reactions.

Basic Life Support

Early resuscitation can improve survival rates by up to 60%. This online course is for anybody, trained or untrained, who wishes to feel more confident in dealing with a collapsed adult or child. Please note that the online course does not qualify its users to carry out either of these tasks without further practical training.

Urinary catheterisation is a procedure used to drain the bladder and collect urine, through a flexible tube called a catheter.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
