Home/Resources / Free course access for healthcare workers in isolation

Are you a registered healthcare worker who has been directed to isolate by your workplace?

We recognise there are many healthcare workers who are in isolation. While we may not be able to speed up your two weeks, we would like to show our appreciation to those on the front line by providing you with free access to an online course, accredited for 6-9 hours of CPD.

You can select one of the three online courses from our Certificate in Clinical Governance:

FAQs

I’m not in isolation, but I could be in the future. Am I able to redeem this gift then?

Yes. We will be offering free course access for at least the next 8 weeks so if you do happen to go into isolation during this time, please submit an application.

How long do I have access to the course for?

All our online courses are available for four (4) weeks from the date you receive your login credentials. We are unable to increase this time.

I’m currently in isolation but am COVID positive. Can I access my course later?

Firstly, we want you to focus on getting better and resting. We do not recommend, nor do we want you to do this course if you are unwell. The course can be redeemed at any point during your isolation (even on the last day if/when you’re feeling better) and will remain open for four weeks.

I was in isolation, but now I’m not. Am I eligible to receive a free course?

Applications for free course access must be made if you are currently in isolation. They cannot be retrospectively given.

This is my second stint in isolation. Am I eligible for another free course?

We are gifting one (1) online course per person, regardless of the number of times you have been in isolation.

I have a colleague who is in isolation. Can I send this to them?

Yes we encourage you to inform any of your eligible colleagues of this offer.

Why are you doing this?

AICG is a division of Health Education Australia Ltd (HEAL), which is a registered charity. We wanted to leverage this part of our organisation to say thank you and to recognise the hard work of front line workers who are doing it tough in isolation.
