HAC Medical Gas Training and Services has developed a new e-learning package, adherent to HTM 02-01 (and SHTM 02-01) standards, ‘to make medical gas training more accessible and time-efficient for nursing and clinical personnel’.
The training is available as an internetbased application, and clients purchase licenses covering all their personnel.
The company said: “Although the costs of e-learning are considerably lower than classroom-based training, due to some aspects of medical gas safety, face-toface learning still forms an essential part of training programmes, and we would always recommend an additional classroom-based session be taken every two years by nursing and clinical personnel dealing with medical gases.
“We can tailor our e-learning package to suit specific customer needs. For instance, where a hospital may have the full suite of medical gases, a hospice may only use oxygen, so may not require so much course content. Our fully certificated courses are available now to suit NHS and private hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, surgeries, clinics, and ambulance services – in essence, anywhere that medical gases are used.”
