About this course

In addition to being held in person, each of our epilepsy training courses can also be delivered online via video conference call, either to an individual or to multiple people.

Our epilepsy awareness online training course is an interactive 3-hour session that offers delegates a broad underpinning knowledge of epilepsy, as well as best practice and practical advice on the management of a person who has a diagnosis of epilepsy.

This can be a standalone course or delegates have the option to combine with our Buccal Midazolam or Rectal Diazepam courses, or a combination of all 3. 

At the end of the session, delegates are offered the chance to interact during an online Q&A session whereby all questions can be asked of our expert trainers.  

Experienced tutors

Our epilepsy awareness courses are delivered by qualified and experienced trainers who have worked within the field for many years. Delegates will gain the benefit of learning about epilepsy in detail from trainers who have hands-on experience delivering care services to people with epilepsy. 

Learn from the comfort of your home or workplace

Our epilepsy training online course variation means that delegates can get detailed insight into epilepsy from whichever location suits them best. Courses can be held with multiple delegates from multiple locations, eliminating the need to gather a team into one location, which can cause problems logistically.   

Courses bespoke to your needs

We always aim to ensure that delegates on our training courses gain exactly what they need, which is why we can create bespoke courses that are perfectly tailored to your requirements. Whether that’s making sure it’s relevant to a particular industry, for an individual’s learning and development or to offer advice and guidance on a specific client. The team at National Epilepsy Training are on hand to ensure you get a unique and valuable experience.
