      To further support learners, CITB has created a DRHS eLearning, which provides the content for learning outcomes one and two. These learning outcomes may only be reflected on by the trainer in the trainer-led sessions, and learners will need to be confident to refer to this knowledge in class discussions and course exercises.

      The interactive course takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete, but you don’t have to do it all at once. You can close the eLearning at any time and, on your return, pick up where you left off. Your progress will be saved automatically. We recommend that you sit the course in 30-minute chunks. The pre-course eLearning is accessed via
