Certification - What is a Certification
A Certification is a course - or collection of courses that are repeating ie. expire at a pre-set time and need to be repeated after the certification is due.
An example of a certification could be level 2 CPR revalidation
To get the initial CPR endorsement you would need to complete the following courses
Then every 12 months - to keep your CPR endorsement valid, you will need to repeat course 2 - the CPR practical session. If the session is not completed in time - then the CPR endorsement expires. Reminders are sent out automatically to prompt people when it is now time to complete the required course again.
Please note: You cannot complete a Certification early, as this is counted as revision and not a new attempt.
Course - Enrol into a Course
After you have logged into healthLearn click on the Find Courses link to see all the available courses, which are arraged in directories.
Select the course that you wish to enrol into.
There are usually four settings.
If you enrol into a course, it is expected that you will complete the course requirements. If you enrol and decide to not complete the course, you are able to un-enrol from the course yourself.
Course - Request a new course
If you are interested in developing a new course, you can submit an online request.
To locate the online request form - If you type the word request into the healthLearn search box - or click HERE
Course - What is a Course
A course is a stand alone learning experience. It may be an individual learning item - or part of a collection of courses (see what is a programme and what is a certification).
Once a person enrols in a course - your record of learning is updated to "in progress". When the course is completed, the record of learning is updated automatically to "completed".
If you cannot cancel your booking yourself this may be because you have missed the course cancellation cutoff. In this case, please contact the course tutor listed on the course page.
Course Content Creation Toolkit
The content creation toolkit outlines how content is developed and maintained in the healthLearn LMS
What is a toolkit?
A toolkit (or style manual) is a formal set of standards used for the writing, structure and layout of courses and content on healthLearn.The purpose of this toolkit is to provide uniformity in layout and style in formatting a course.
When constructing a course, or building content in healthLearn, it is important to ensure that your work aligns to the healthLearn style guide, so that users of your course can locate essential information easily, and that all areas of your course are familiar and easier to use.
The information is presented in three sections.

Course Naming and Code Conventions
Courses have a strict naming convention
(Main topic) (Sub topic) (Other descriptor)
This means that a course would be named as follows
Blood Administration – An Introduction (instead of “an introduction to blood administration”)
Cannulation – Peripheral Insertion Workshop (instead of “workshop to insert a peripheral cannula”)
To assist with organising and searching for specific courses, we have adopted the following course code naming convention.
(Main Course Location – 2 letters) (Course primary sub-type – 2 letters) (Numerical Code – 3 numbers)
