Can I enrol in one year then decide later if I want to enrol in the second year?
Yes. Each program year is fully self-contained and can be completed as a stand-alone one-year course. However, please note that program places are limited so we advise enrolling in your second year as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
Do I have to attend all of the modules/weekends?
No. The theory modules are recorded and can be watched online afterwards. However, the practical modules are not recorded. To be eligible for the GPCert, delegates must attend all practical modules and either attend or watch online all theory modules.
How much practical time is included?
Each year there are 4 practical modules, split over two weekends. Total practical time is 24 hours.
Do I need to bring anything to the practicals?
No. All practicals are fully supplied/equipped by Improve. Disposable gowns are provided but you may wish to bring your own scrubs for your comfort.
Is there an online component to this course?
Delegates receive access to our online learning platform where they can download digital copies of their notes (hard copies supplied on the day) and any other materials supplied by the speakers. They can also watch session recordings and chat with their cohort via the delegate discussion forum.
