At LUCFR, we strongly believe in continual training for our volunteer responders. Whilst we already offer in-person monthly training sessions, we have decided to create an innovative method for our volunteers to revise core knowledge remotely.
Our new revision quizzes have been built on existing ambulance service guidelines, and aim to offer responders an opportunity to revise core knowledge at any time. In particular, we hope that this will be useful after periods of inactivity (e.g. around exams and holidays) or prior to annual requalifications.
There are several benefits to our new technology-based revision methods:
- Revision materials can be remotely accessed using a wide variety of devices, increasing accessibility for our volunteers.
- Quizzes can quickly be updated in-line with new guidelines, removing the chance of out-of-date revision materials being used.
- We can actively monitor question performance. This will allow us to tailor in-person revision sessions to weaker areas, but also review and edit questions.
Quizzes can be accessed here.
Update: After a trial period, LUCFR have now made the decision to make our quizzes available to all East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) CFR groups. Scheme coordinators have been contacted with login details. We are currently limiting this to EMAS groups only as the quizzes are based on trust-specific guidelines.
