Please note: This module now produces a certificate at the end of the learning. The learner will need to send this to a Training Advisor/ Manager/ Administrator who will be able to validate the module on Compass. If you are unable to print your certificate for any reason please save it as a .png file or take a screen shot of the page. Please don't save the web link as an alternative to printing the certificate, as this will expire once you leave the browser and your certificate will be lost. If your certificate will not load and only shows a blank screen please take a screenshot of the final page prior to selecting the certificate as proof of learning. This can be shared with your Training Adviser.

This module will appear on new member's training records on Compass under the Getting Started training. Current members will need to have this module added to their Personal Learning Plan by a Training Adviser once validated.
