Preventing Falls in Older People Certificate Course

Approximately 1 in 3 older adults living at home will have at least one fall each year. In most cases, falls do not result in serious injury. However, in some cases, they can have devastating effects. For instance, an older adult with osteoporosis may sustain a serious fracture following a fall. This course will teach you why older people often suffer falls and how falls can be prevented in domestic settings. You will learn practical strategies for adapting the environment and working with healthcare professionals, in order to reduce the risk and promote independence.

  • Why older people are at particular risk of falls
  • Environmental factors that make a fall more likely
  • What to do if you fall
  • How to prevent falls in domestic settings by adjusting the environment
  • Getting help with day-to-day tasks and investing in safety aids
  • Why strength and balance training can reduce the risk of falls
  • How to start an effective exercise programme
  • Why regular sight tests can minimise an individual’s risk of falls
  • The link between medication, alcohol and falls

Benefits of taking this Course:

  • If you are an older adult at risk of a fall, this course will help reduce your risk of injury
  • If you live with or care for an older adult, this course will help you safeguard their wellbeing
  • If you work with older adults in a supported or residential living facility, this course will help you contribute to a safer environment

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.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

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%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 2.5 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

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

After much searching, I stumbled across this online course which sounded perfect for what I wanted and was available at a very affordable cost. This is the first time I have taken an online course, so wasn’t sure what to expect or if my money was going to be well spent.

The course is great, it was very easy to follow with simple, clear instructions and the additional use of video demonstrations that I found extremely helpful. It was handy to be able to print off all the course modules to keep for future reference and nice to receive a certificate upon completion.

Whilst I will probably never have a career as nail technician, I have gained what I wanted from this course, lots of knowledge and new confidence to do manicures/pedicures on both myself, friends & family.

It was a very informative and thorough course. And was made easy to learn and understand different aspects of Hotel Industry and Management issues through day-to-day examples.
It not only enlightened me with Hotel Management but Management in general as well.

I will keep these precious tips and notes handy to refer back to them when needed. In a nutshell, money well spent and I will come back for more courses in future.

The beauty of this course was how easy yet composite this course was. And the manner in which the notes are written made it very easy for me to carry on grasping knowledge from the beginning to the end.

Imran Amjad

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 ?

I started doing nails as a hobby, and my interest just carried on growing, I never thought that I would end up qualified!

This is an amazing way to turn your hobby into a nice little money maker and boost your own confidence and knowledge in the process.

Amy Armstrong

An excellent course that looks great on any CV and opens career doors. Having an industry-recognised qualification is useful in any line of work.

I have not yet completed the course but anticipate being able to use the skills learned to broadening my careers options. Would highly recommend this course. It has plenty of supplementary material for the user and is as in-depth as it is comprehensive.

Love the flexibility of the course which allows the user to study in his/her own time which is great for those in full time employment or those with family commitments. Excellent course this far.
