Live sessions

For the best experience it is recommended that you use a laptop or computer rather than a phone or tablet to access the Online Learning Hub.

Log onto the Online Learning Hub using your email address and your chosen password and click into the Online Mental Health First Aid course that you have been assigned to.

Live sessions will start 15mins before the advertised start time. We use Zoom to deliver the live sessions.

Please ensure you have completed all of the individual learning activities in advance of the Live session as together we will be building on the knowledge that you have gained from your pre-learning. If you haven’t completed the activities it may be difficult to participate in the skills practice in the session, and please be reminded that completion of all learning activities is essential for qualification.

Getting Started

It’s recommended that you use Chrome to access the Online Learning Hub.

Please do take a moment to test your tech before joining a session. Make sure that your webcam, microphone and speakers are working so that you can fully participate in the live sessions. Please make sure that you face the camera if you are using more than one screen. If you have not used Zoom before you can access information here 

Think about your surroundings and try to be in a comfortable and quiet space. Try to minimise and background noise and reduce possible distractions by turning off your emails and mobile phone. Please have all your learning materials at hand for the live sessions, including a pen, paper and your workbook.

Further Support

It is important to recognise that this course covers material that you may find emotionally triggering. Your self-care is important and your safety throughout is our priority. Please consider identifying someone who could potentially support you during or after the course if you need it. Please take some time to identify this person before the course starts.
