There are three steps to complete when undertaking a Blended MHFA course.
- Complete course component 1 elearning. You will need to create an account (or log in to an existing account) and then enrol in eLearning here. You can pay directly for course component 1 elearning. Alternatively, an elearning voucher may be provided to you by an Instructor, your workplace or course organiser/administrator. Every elearning enrolment includes a hardcopy MHFA manual. Once enrolled, participants can also access and view an online manual via their dashboard when logged in to their account. It is a pre-requisite to complete the eLearning before participating in the half-day face-to-face session with an accredited Instructor.
- Attend Instructor-led course component 2. You should attend this no later than 3 months after completion of the eLearning component. This session allows participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate knowledge in a group environment, while applying their skills to specific scenarios. If you would like to arrange for an Instructor to deliver the half-day face-to-face session for a workplace or participant group (private course) you can find an accredited Instructor here. Please be advised, our Instructors work independently and therefore have the autonomy and flexibility to set their own fees. They can provide a quote and advise about their booking and payment processes. Instructors are able to purchase elearning vouchers for course component 1 and distribute these to participants which we would recommend.
- Complete an online assessment to become an Accredited Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider). Accredited MHFAiders receive a digital Certificate of Accreditation, which is valid for 3 years, after completing both the eLearning and face-to-face components of the course and successfully passing the online assessment.
