Online courses are exactly what they say: online only. You can take these online courses at your own pace, without ever being in a virtual or face-to-face classroom. We offer online reaccreditation for Award in Access to Hospitals (SCQF level6) for those who need to access hospitals, but not critical care areas. We also offer online modules for those who wish to re-accredit their Award for Access to Operating Theatres (SCQF level8), or who want only to sit the exam for Award for Access to Operating Theatres (SCQF level8). If you are an Industry professional working in hospitals and are unsure which of our ‘Access’ courses to take, this advice is for you: if you need to acquire the knowledge to enter any critical care areas such as Operating Theatres, ITU/ICU, Interventional Radiology suites, Recovery Areas inside a hospital, then you need either the Award in Access to Operating Theatres (SCQF Level 8), which is our 360 Theatre Access course or our 360 Hospital Access Course (Award in Principles of Risk Management in Patient Facing Areas, EduQual level 5), depending upon whether or not the critical care areas you will be accessing include an operating theatre. Both of these courses are face-to-face or held in our online virtual class room and can be accessed here and here. See below for further details, then select the course that’s right for you.
Please note: SCQF Level 8 is broadly comparable with RQF 5” and “SCQF Level 6 is broadly comparable with RQF 3
Re-accreditation for the Award in Access to Hospitals (SCQF Level 6) revalidates the knowledge and skills which hospital management expect of anyone whose role requires them to access general hospital areas.

To enter Critical Care Areas (other than operating theatres), you need our 360 Hospital Access course (Award in Principles of Risk Management in Patient Facing Areas, EduQual level5).
