Premium Health - Health Care Training Team

Preparing for your training with Premium Health

So you've booked in training with Premium Health and are wondering what's next? Our below guide helps you prepare for your onsite or live virtual classroom training with us and know what to expect during and after the training.

Preparing for your training

Your participants must enrol into the training session through our online platform ‘Vasto’ at least 72 hours prior to course commencement. Click here for more details, including an instructional video on how to enrol your students.

Some of our courses require participants to complete pre-work prior to attending their training. Participants who have not completed the pre-work, will be turned away and asked to rebook at full cost, so make sure your participants are aware of their pre-work requirements, if there are any. All pre-work requirements are available in our online 'Vasto' student portal. Participants will gain access to this portal once enrolled into the training. Please ensure your team are aware of their requirements before attending training and reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.

An instructional video on how participants can check their pre-work requirements, and subsequently complete them, can be found here.

Your staff will need to bring a pen and a valid form of photo identification to their training.

To participate successfully in a live virtual classroom training program, participants will also need:

  • A device (such as a laptop or tablet) that has a working microphone and camera
  • A strong, stable internet connection

All participants must join a live virtual classroom with a working microphone and camera. If our trainer cannot see and/or hear a participant, they will be removed from the session.

Please see "On the day of your training" for more information on running a successful live virtual classroom training program.

We require an appropriate training room to facilitate your session when undertaking a face-to-face training program. Unfortunately we will not be able to conduct the training if your space does not have the appropriate requirements. Your training room will need to adhere to occupational health and safety and fire regulations and require the following:

  • Working AV equipment (laptop/computer and tv/projector) that allows our trainer to play a PowerPoint and videos
  • Adequate heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation
  • Carpeted floor space
  • Chairs and tables/desks for each participant
  • A whiteboard or butcher's paper
  • An all-day parking space for the trainer, preferably adjacent to the venue to facilitate off-loading of equipment
  • A staff member to meet and assists with unloading and carrying of equipment and direct our trainer to the training room

Where possible, Premium Health has found a 'u-shape' set up most appropriate when facilitating training. This allows the trainer to move around the room, and assist each participant individually where required. It also allows for plenty of floor space for practical activities such as CPR. Click here for a diagram of the ideal room set up.

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Premium Health has implemented robust infection control measures to ensure the health and safety of our clients and our staff attending training.

We provide contact free first aid, health care and mental health training. As nurses, paramedics and mental health practitioners we are very clear about infection control during COVID-19 – in fact, we teach it! With respect to the delivery of specific courses in first aid and health care that require human-to-human contact, we have put in place alternative measures to minimise the need to practice on others.

The Government has stressed that the measures of practicing good hygiene and keeping a physical distance between individuals are in place to fight this virus. We discuss with each of our clients:

  • The requirement for masks to be worn during training where required by the Government or workplace
  • The 4m x 4m and 1.5m social distancing guidelines apply
  • PPE such as gloves which will be used for some assessments
  • The cleaning procedure for our resources
  • Specific modification for assessments such as imitating breathing into the manikin for CPR.

All our trainers have been briefed on social distancing and changes to our courses especially in CPR and First Aid programs.  In these courses all trainers are equipped with ACTAR manikins which have a closed ventilation system where each participant’s manikin has an individual, singular use, plastic lung bag that captures the participants breath and droplets. We do not use Resusci Anne manikins as it does not have a closed ventilation system per individual and therefore cannot provide adequate infection control protection in a class environment without considerable changing of parts.

Every coordinator who organises training with Premium Health will have their own, individual coordinator login in our online corporate portal. Here you can view your upcoming training programs, student certificates and more. Login details for your portal are sent from a 'no reply' email address at the time of your booking being confirmed. These often enter junk inboxes, so please check there if you cannot locate them. Alternatively, please click ‘Forgotten your password’ on the page here and enter your email address to have them reset.

On the day of your training

For onsite, face-to-face training, your trainer will arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to course commencement. Please ensure someone is available to meet the trainer (and pass on these site contact details to your Account Manager if you haven’t already).

For onsite, face-to-face training, yes they do! Our trainer has a lot of equipment for your session and needs a parking space close to the facility. Please make sure the parking space is ‘all day’ as we don’t want the trainer popping out of the session every hour to move their car!

For onsite, face-to-face training, yes please! Assistance with unloading equipment is required so please ensure someone is available to meet our trainer. Let us know if there are any special arrival details we should pass on to the trainer such as site access, site contact, entrance gates etc.

We conduct our live virtual classroom as we would a real-life classroom. Virtual classrooms can be new to your staff, so please ensure they are aware of the expected behaviour when undertaking training. Some behaviour, such as driving while attending a session, will not be tolerated.

The following etiquette requirements apply to all online live training workshops:

  • Participants are requested to enter the waiting room 10 minutes prior to the starting time
  • No more than the maximum number of participants will be allowed to enter the session from the waiting room
  • Participants will not be able to join the workshop if they logon more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time
  • Coordinators seeking to take attendance at the beginning of the session will not be able to enter the workshop if they arrive more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time
  • If participants leave the session, they will not be permitted to re-join
  • Active participation of participants is required throughout the session via video/audio/chat box to engage in knowledge questions at the end of session and trainer questions/case studies throughout session
  • Participants seen to be driving whilst in the session will either be asked to stop and park or will be removed from session.
  • Recording of the session or asking the trainer to record the session will not be allowed due to privacy of participants and intellectual property rights of materials

Attendance at a virtual workshop will require participants to have the capability to access the online platform via a device with video and audio capability. Our trainer must be able to see and hear all participants at all times. Those who cannot be seen and/or heard will not be marked as having completed the training.

It is our experience that the students will be able to see, hear and interact more effectively with our trainer when joining from their own device, in their own private and quiet space. If students are joining from the same room, please join via one device that can see and hear everyone in the training.

To ensure the success of your program and optimise the learning experience for your students, we strongly recommend that you test your staff's ability to log on to their computer with audio and video settings through the online platform prior to the training session. All training sessions have a 10 minute grace period. After this time our trainer will not be able to admit any participants into the course. We recommend participants log on to the session at least 15 minutes prior to course commencement. This way any technical issues can be troubleshooted before the session to minimise the risk of the participant connecting too late to be admitted into the course.

The link to your live virtual classroom will be sent to you upon successful confirmation of your booking. You are required to provide this link and instructions to your team members. They will not receive this link separately from Premium Health.

Premium Health evaluated many online platforms and we believe the best online education platform is Zoom.  Training delivered by Zoom provides a superior experience for our participants due to the ease of use and education features such as waiting room, whiteboard and ability to use break out rooms for case studies or activities.

The following etiquette requirements apply to all online live training workshops:

  • Participants are requested to enter the waiting room 10 minutes prior to the starting time
  • No more than 15 participants will be allowed to enter the session from the waiting room
  • Participants will not be able to join the workshop if they logon more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time
  • Coordinators seeking to take attendance at the beginning of the session will not be able to enter the workshop if they arrive more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time
  • If participants leave the session, they will not be permitted to re-join
  • Active participation of participants is required throughout the session via video/audio/chat box to engage in knowledge questions at the end of session and trainer questions/case studies throughout session
  • Participants seen to be driving whilst in the session will either be asked to stop and park or will be removed from session.
  • Recording of the session or asking the trainer to record the session will not be allowed due to privacy of participants and intellectual property rights of materials

I have been in the Police Force for 23 years and never in my career have I ever experienced such a knowledgeable, engaging and friendly first aid instructor than I have today. I have also never felt so confident and competent in my ability to administer first aid as a result of today’s training.
