To create a record that you have completed and understood the various online resources, you are advised to complete a Reflective Practice Form for each online course you undertake.
This form will help to reinforce the main learning points whilst also identifying any further learning requirements you may have. It is recommended that you discuss the completed form with your Line Manager and have them counter-sign it. This form should then be retained by yourself and can be used as evidence for a course completion record, professional registration and SVQ evidence.
