How Has Covid-19 Affected eLearning and Assessment?

In line with government advice, our Head Office and national network of Training Centres are currently closed to the general public. As a consequence, we are unable to conduct our normal invigilated assessments.

We are now operating assessments remotely via Zoom. Due to high demand, our assessment slots are fully booked until September, and we are unable to take new bookings. Please note that when you complete any of our paid-for eLearning courses (with or without an invigilated assessment), you will receive an RSPH CPD Completion Certificate.

If you choose to purchase an assessment alongside your course, we will be in touch as soon as we are open to take bookings. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you would like to purchase a qualification-based eLearning course with an assessment, you are now able to book an online assessment and take your qualification assessment at home. If you purchase an eLearning course, you'll still receive an RSPH CPD Completion Certificate as normal when you complete your course (with or without an invigilated assessment).

If you have any questions about our eLearning assessments, feel free to email our eLearning team, or call us on: 020 7265 7316. Stay safe!

How do I Purchase an RSPH eLearning Course?

You can purchase an eLearning course by visiting the course page listed on our eLearning Homepage. Here you will be able to select a course (with or without an assessment to gain a qualification), add it to your basket and complete your purchase.

If you’d like to add multiple courses to your basket, please select the 'CONTINUE SHOPPING' link displayed at the bottom of your basket and add your chosen additional courses. You will then receive one set of user details to access your chosen courses.

Once you have made your purchase you will receive a confirmation email and we will be in touch with joining instructions.

If you have any further questions about purchasing an eLearning course you can email the RSPH eLearning team.


How do I Log into my eLearning Account?

You can log into your RSPH eLearning account from the eLearning homepage on the RSPH website, by selecting the eLearning Students link.

If you are having difficulties accessing your account, please ensure you are not attempting to log in to the RSPH Member or Centre Areas.


I've Forgotten my eLearning Login Password. How do I Recover it?

If you have forgotten your eLearning account details, you can request a new password through the eLearning login page or by emailing the RSPH eLearning Team.


How do I Navigate Through an eLearning Course?

To navigate through our eLearning programmes, you need to use the 'And' buttons either side of the page. You can access all the topics from the 'Main Menu' screen within the eLearning programme, but be aware that for some of our courses, you must complete the topics in chronological order. You can access the 'Main Menu' at any time by clicking on the 'Menu' button at the bottom left of each screen.

The online eLearning platform tracks your progress, so you can complete your course in multiple sittings. However, in order to track your progress, you must make sure that you access the course from the same device and browser each time.

Our programmes can be accessed via a computer, tablet or smartphone. However, the design and layout of some of our programmes has been optimised for a computer/larger screen. If you do not have access to a computer or tablet, please access the course in portrait mode.


I have Completed my Course – will I Receive a Certificate?

If you have completed a course that you purchased from our website, you will receive an electronic CPD certificate upon completion. You will find instructions on how to access your certificate at the end of the course.

You will have access to one certificate per course, in the original account holder’s name, so please purchase one course per user.

If you decide to sit an assessment for one of our courses that are mapped to an RSPH Qualification, please contact the RSPH eLearning team to organise your assessment. Upon successful completion of the assessment, you will receive a certificate from RSPH in the post to your agreed address. 

Please be aware that we do not offer certificates for our free eLearning programmes.


How do I Book an Assessment with RSPH?

If you would like to take an assessment to gain a qualification from your eLearning programme, you will need to register for an official examination at an approved RSPH Centre.

Exams will follow the same format as the practice assessment and will be invigilated under exam conditions.

There are a number of options available for taking an assessment. Please visit our Assessment Options page for more information, or contact the RSPH eLearning team for enquiries.
