E-Learning Module 1: Fall Prevention
Important Information Before Getting Started
Module 1 consists of a brief introduction and four sections. Each section is designed to be completed separately. Once you start a section you will need to complete it, as there is no option to save your progress. Each section will take approximately 30 minutes so please give yourself adequate time to complete. The entire e-learning module should take you no longer than 120 minutes.
