What skills need brushing up?

Refresher training is exactly that – designed to support all those working on ‘live’ medical gas pipeline systems in staying up to date with the latest best practice, says Eastwood Park, which delivers refreshers for Competent and Authorised Persons in line with HTM 02-01 guidance.

“A significant part focuses on gaps in current knowledge, as inevitably skills need to move on during a threeyear period – the recommended timeframe for refresher training in the HTM,” said Michael Ell, Medical Gas Portfolio manager. “Refreshers are sometimes perceived as ‘just a re-run’, but with us they are an opportunity for learners to practice skills and competencies, and to look in greater depth at aspects of the HTM they need to know about.

“Our training is always designed to deliver higher levels of practical experience than most other training available. Our dedicated gas pipeline training facility enables hands-on learning, as the HTM requires high levels of skills and practical knowledge. This means our learners leave with real confidence, because they have practiced what is in the HTM, and been allowed to learn from making mistakes, but in a safe, secure environment.” 

Eastwood Park has updated its medical gas portfolio. Alongside refreshers for Authorised and Competent Persons, available now are courses for: 

  • Competent Person MGPS first responder.
  • Quality Controller MGPS introduction.n Quality Controller MGPS refresher.
  • Nurse MGPS.
  • Porter MGPS.
  • Designated nursing officer MGPS.
