Over fifty empirical studies focused on emergency response training indicate that skill diminishes significantly during the first three to six months in the absence of practice.
To address this concern, our practice tool employs four established principles that impact long-term retention.
These four essentials are:
Re-reading learned materials does not exercise or impact long term memory. Freely recalling information on demand is an exercise proven to develop long-term retention.
Spacing the effort to recall information is a very powerful, proven technique to develop retention.
As information is recalled repetitively over intervals, long term memory and instant recall is developed, similar to the way we learn the times table or to memorize prose, etc.
The Testing Effect
Learning and retention develops the best when their efforts produce a quantified end result, somewhat like a prize.

Central to the PracticePal toolkit is an online tool providing practice opportunities in five minute exercises. These exercises are focused on the critical skills required in an emergency.
Our toolkit supports three roles in industry:
For first responders PracticePal provides:
For health and safety managers PracticePal provides:
A second tool, used to conduct and evaluate live scenario drills/tests with efficiency in group sessions. This tool produces a standardized grade for each drill/test; based on WorkSafeBC guidelines.
For HR and executive managers PracticePal provides:
