By using Learning Pool’s LMS, the lengthy and costly process of assessments being ‘marked’ by instructors has been removed and learners can receive their marks instantly upon course completion. Using Learning Pool’s platform, HFRS hosts a total of 66 assessments that have facilitated over 6,000 online completions by their firefighters. Over £7,100 has been saved in the Crew Commander Assessment – a saving of over £224 per firefighter in this one assessment.
High rise incidents present one of the most challenging operational environments encountered within the world of firefighting and require significant resources to mitigate even the most routine fire or emergency. Like other Fire and Rescue Services across the UK, HFRS is required to provide training in such scenarios to ensure the safety of their personnel and the public. E-learning and online assessments have proved to be a useful resource in supporting this requirement.
“The system is a good way to refresh personnel and is a good training aid” HFRS firefighter Wesley Cook.
