The Joint Epilepsy Council require learners to receive epilepsy awareness training in addition to emergency medication training. Our 3.5-hour course (above) provides the epilepsy awareness training in a workbook which is studied either before, or on the day of the workshop. As an alternative, we can run this 2-hour module at the start of the workshop which takes the epilepsy awareness information from the workbook and teaches it in an additional face-to-face module.
