Legionnaires’ Disease Awareness Certificate Course

Over 300 cases of Legionnaires’ disease are reported every year in England and Wales. The majority of these cases occur in the workplace. It is a serious illness that proves fatal in up to 12% of cases. Legionnaires’ disease is caused by Legionella bacteria, which may grow in water systems. Fortunately, it is relatively simple to identify potential sites of Legionella growth. In this course, you will learn how to identify and manage Legionella and meet your obligations under health and safety law with regards to risk management at work.

You Will Learn

  • What causes Legionnaires’ disease, how people catch it, symptoms and who is particularly vulnerable to Legionella bacteria.
  • The systems most likely to facilitate the growth of Legionella, including the type of water stored in a system and its temperature.
  • How to conduct a risk assessment to identify potential sources of Legionella growth and the obligations of a business owner under the law.
  • How and when you should test for Legionella and the main types of tests used in laboratories.

Benefits of Taking This Course

  • If you are responsible for controlling work premises, you will benefit from learning what you must do to prevent and handle Legionella growth.
  • Anyone who may come into contact with Legionella at work will benefit from learning about the symptoms and effects of Legionnaires’ disease, as prompt intervention saves lives.
  • If you are responsible for conducting risk assessments at work, this course will help you ascertain whether there is a reasonable foreseeable risk that someone may become infected with Legionnaires’ disease and put preventive measures in place.
  • If you are interested in occupational health or work in an HR role, this course will broaden your knowledge of occupational disease.

Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 4 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

Once you have completed all 4 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 4 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

I am on the 4th module and so far I have to say I am really enjoying it.
I have already learnt so much that I never knew before about the human body.
I started this course because I am currently getting into health and fitness to make a better life and future for myself and so I know what is right and wrong when I exercise or with what I am putting into my body.
The layout is really easy to understand and follow, the questions at the end of each module is really helpful too as refreshes what you have already read and learnt. Overall, I am pretty addicted to the course and getting through it quick. Definitely worth the money.

The waxing course was very easy to follow and full of all the information needed. Fantastic easy step by step videos and diagrams.

Great help for setting up your own business as this course gives you all the correct information and procedures to follow.

I work from home offering a variety of other treatments, including eye lash extensions, threading and tanning now having this treatment is an added bonus… and very happy clients.

Would definitely recommend to others who are looking to follow in the same direction as me to broaden their treatments to offer for their own clients ?

Laura Turner

Absolutely fantastic! I would definitely recommend doing this course if you are a beginner, and I would also say that you definitely do not have to worry as all three learning types are covered! It is also great to have the ability to get in touch with a tutor if stuck, especially if you haven’t got someone at home or work to help you understand something!

If I hadn’t of already completed this course and chosen to start the next level up, I would happily do this course again. However, I would recommend this course, even more so for someone who is trying to learn for a career change! Exactly what I did and because of this very reason, and feared that it would expensive to change my career, and was amazed how easy and cheap it was!

Great course. Easily readable online, no jargon and had up to date information and illustrations as well as the sources that were used within the modules. Most modules had an assessment at the end where you could check your own knowledge - this was a great add on to ensure you are up to speed. The exam was easily laid out great with no tricky to read questions. The completion certificate was easily accessible on completion and you are given your grade immediately after the exam - it even gives you the option to see your incorrect answers so you can review them in your own leisure. All of the modules are printable so you can ready back as often as you like. Not only this, but throughout the whole course, you have the ability to email representatives of the course who will answer any questions you may have and they are very prompt with their responses. I was overall very happy with this course and will definitely keep New Skills Academy in mind when taking future course. Thank you!

Gemma Johnston

Very nice and practical. Good course structure comes with handout. Each module contains down-to-earth content which provide a comprehensive knowledge from learning about this industry, getting to know the florist and the basic understanding about flowers, then to how to start and maintain our own business.

With the completed course which does provide me clear guidelines to enter this industry and knowing what’s in front of me.

The hand out does help a lot too. I can decide freely when to learn and the learning pace by my own. Through this course, I’ve also established a solid knowledge about techniques of how to take care of flowers correctly, how to design and create my own bouquet.

Overall, I am very satisfied.

Cynthia Huang

A great programme, and allowed me to interact in my own time, reflect on my learning and get to practice. I like the fact that there is an exam to verify and check learning. The platform is easy to navigate around and is engaging both left hemisphere and right hemisphere of the brain.

The parts about motivation and retention rates is interesting and will be helpful in my own personal career. It’s good to see that learning and development, including different training methods are included. The programme is great springboard for people wanting to go into human resources as a career option.
