The EssentialSkillz Pandemic Awareness Online Training Course explains what a pandemic is, and the difference between that and a seasonal outbreak.
Unlike seasonal outbreaks, which are caused by different types of influenza viruses that already exist within a population, pandemic outbreaks occur when a new virus emerges and spreads rapidly from person to person around the world, as the human body has not yet been able to build immunity. Pandemics can lead to high fatality levels.
The course describes physical symptoms, explains how a virus can spread and provides advice about the actions to take to avoid infection and if medical help is required.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, our Pandemic Awareness course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
All our courses provide technically accurate training which keeps your organisation in line with best practice. We include the latest techniques in learning which ensure learners are engaged throughout. Our courses are also:
Add your own scripts, images, videos, presentations and interactions - with no coding experience required. Use our suite of templates to make our courses your own, delivering highly relevant training to your organisation at no extra cost.
You can deploy this course using our compliance focused Learning Management System. Alternatively you can deliver this course, with all its key features, directly from your third-party LMS.
Our Pandemic Awareness course can integrate with JAWS ® a widely available text-to-speech integration to help visually impaired users engage with the same, unabridged and high-quality compliance training as their colleagues.
On successful completion, learners receive a personalised certificate which includes the learner’s name, score and date of completion. Certificates can be viewed, downloaded and printed off at any time to serve as a record of compliance.
Create your own question and answer bank to test your users on the key information that they need to know to be fully compliant. Set core questions to appear in the test section that users are required to pass so that crucial learning points are reinforced.
Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.
The course is suitable for all employees to assist with business continuity during a pandemic.
