Overview

About the Drugs Awareness Certificate

Originally developed by the Wigan Drug Action Team as a short, informative programme for students in schools and colleges, this course will tell you all you need to know about drugs. Drug addiction is a worldwide problem and the only chance we have of stopping it is to educate as many people as possible about drugs and the consequences of taking them.

The course is short; taking approximately 10 hours to complete. Although it’s not our longest programme, the drugs awareness certificate does not skimp on detail. The course material is engaging, interactive and educational and covers everything from the types of substances in circulation, to the effects of substance abuse.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at individuals who want to broaden their understanding of substance abuse and its causes. It is also suitable for people who want to work in health and social care, rehabilitation or counselling roles.

As with all of our courses here at learndirect, we don’t ask that our students have any prior qualifications. In order to enrol, all you need is access to the internet, a computer and the motivation to engage in home study.
