  1. Very disappointing


    I was very disappointed with this course.
    Obviously it is hard to achieve the same feel online with what is usually a face-to-face practical course but it felt like it was very much written by a medic rather than a person who would usually deliver BLS training. The medical terminology was not defined (e.g. poor perfusion, asystole, ventricular fibrillation, supine) so there seemed to be an assumed level of knowledge of medical terminology, which would not be expected on your usual BLS training.
    The over all appearance was not very professional, for example, the inserted diagrams and tables looked very ‘cut and pasted’ and some had clearly been too small when pasted and therefore expanded as the writing was starting to look pixelated.
    On my mock and final exams 5 of the 25 questions were completely irrelevant to my ability to perform Basic Life Support (e.g. knowing what ILCOR stands for, or what year is considered the birth of modern CPR is completely unnecessary knowledge for me to demonstrate when the aim is supposed to be for me to have the practical knowledge and skills of how to successfully carry out BLS). I also had the same questions twice relating to ventricular fibrillation.
    When I did my final exam 22 or 23 of the 25 questions were already filled in (they were ones I had done in my mock exam) and when I answered the remaining questions I was unable to submit my answers as it kept telling me I had unanswered questions. Even after going through all 25 questions again and re-entering the correct answers it still took me several attempts to submit my answers as it still said I had unanswered questions.
