Pre-course learning materials

Lectures (videos and slides) are available online:

Delegates are given password-protected access.

NB For those seeking FAMUS accreditation, the first steps are: (1) register with the FAMUS administrator; (2) identify a Supervisor to oversee your training; (3) complete the e-learning module covering basic theory, ICE-BLU online e-learning module; and (4) Enrol on a FAMUS approved course. See the FAMUS curriculum pack (pdf).

Please note that the online lectures are a requirement for the course and complement but do not replace the requirement to complete the ICE-BLU module. Most trainees will probably find the module a bit more challenging than the online lectures.
