Lung Foundation Australia is proud to launch the new Lungs in Action Website and upgrade of the online training platform. As a part of our continual quality management of the Lungs in Action training package, over the festive season the Lungs in Action training platform received an upgrade to Moodle 2.4 to optimize the training experience and usability for our online learners. The website will continue to be developed and refined, so make sure to visit the site regularly to obtain any updated information. If you would like to give any feedback on either the new website layout or content or the upgraded training portal, please do not hesitate to contact the program manager.
2013 is gearing up to be a big year for Lungs in Action. With 50 classes already running throughout 5 Australian states, there are 10 new locations aiming to begin Lungs in Action in the first half of 2013, with interest from many more. Some of the new Lungs in Action locations include NSW: Warners Bay, Port Macquarie, Bowral & Central Coast. VIC: Templestowe, Malvern & Launching Place. QLD: Rockhampton & Bundall. TAS: Launstetan. Use the new class locations map icon above to find out where Lungs in Action classes are being held and when they are running.
ESSA has recently confirmed that the organization will award 8 ESSA CPD points to members who successfully complete the Online Theory only component of the Lungs in Action training. This is a great opportunity for those who don’t necessarily want to become an instructor of specific Lungs in Action class, but are looking for a training option to increase their knowledge base with exercising those with pulmonary conditions and heart failure. For those interested in completing the FULL instructor training ESSA will award 15 CPD points. To find out more information on obtaining continuing education points go to the course information section of the website.
