It could be a while before we can get back to any meaningful face-to-face training so we have been busy adapting one of our most popular courses, the ‘Two-day HHSRS Practitioner’ for online delivery. The HHSRS is a complex topic and the course includes lots of discussions, shared experiences and interactive exercises; all essential elements that contribute to achieving and demonstrating understanding. Translation of such an interactive course is not an easy task and not one we felt we could rush.
Transitioning to online learning
Our starting point was to complete a number of outstanding HHSRS courses that we were halfway through when the lockdown came into force. This process is ongoing at the moment and we are pleased to report the experience using the GoToTraining platform has been successful and well received with one delegate saying “Really enjoyed the webinar and the delivery. It was nice to be able to carry on, regardless of the current crisis”. Our primary concern has been to maintain the same high standard of training taking time and care to work on the material, think about delivery and get to grips with new software. Oh, and behind the scenes, to get used to the new method of delivery, our Training Team and the HHSRS trainers have practised, practised, practised!
The online ‘Two-day HHSRS Practitioner’ course will break down to a number of webinar sessions, possibly with a little bit of homework in between. The course will continue to require a house inspection and report to be submitted and assessed as it is the one aspect we can’t change. It will continue to provide expert guidance on group level with the addition of one-to-one support. We are confident that our methodical approach will provide a supportive learning environment so that delegates can achieve certification and continue their professional development from the safety of their office or home.
Book from September onwards
We will be announcing September enrolment dates soon with more to follow not long after.
