New extrication e-learning program supported by Holmatro
As introduced at Interschutz 2015
The company Fire-learning, specialist in e-learning programs for Fire & Rescue Services, is proud to present “Extrication e-learning”. This online course is based on Holmatro’s Vehicle Extrication Techniques book and app, written by Rescue Consultant Ian Dunbar. It includes subjects such as safety, new car technology, tools & equipment, the Team Approach – a method that aims to reduce time on scene – and many technical rescue techniques you can use with a vehicle on its wheels, on its side and on its roof. Numerous pictures and videos make it easier to absorb the learning material.
It has been found through research that compared to condensed training, spaced practice is much more effective in promoting long-term retention (Bjork 1999). And that is exactly the main benefit of e-learning: it guides you through the subject matter step by step and helps you repeat themes you haven’t completely mastered yet. Success is guaranteed for everyone of all levels: the course continues until you have achieved a predefined result. And after that regular review exercises help you preserve your knowledge. This is how e-learning contributes to continuous professional development.
Information for instructors
Extrication e-learning saves instructors a lot of time as it fully replaces theoretical classroom training. In addition, instructors have access to a student monitoring system where they can see all results. Analyzing these results can help them identify specific training needs. The course is very suitable to combine with hands-on training.
