BVS eLEARNING PLATFORM
The eLearning provided by BVS Training Ltd consists of any courses provided on the following web sites:
ACCESS TO THE BVS eLEARNING PLATFORM WITH A SUBSCRIPTION LICENCE
A CareTutor eLearning subscription licence grants the Customer and their associated Users the right to access the eLearning, throughout the length of the contract. The subscription fee is based on the number of employees in the Customer’s organisation. BVS Training Ltd. reserves the right to change the subscription fee if the number of Users is more than the stated amount and this amount is then payable by the Customer. If the number of Users does exceed the amount stated on the Customer’s original subscription invoice, additional Users will be added to the subscription from the date that the original subscription began, and the cost for those Users will be owed by the Customer at the same rate as the Users on the Customer’s original subscription invoice, unless agreed otherwise with BVS Training Ltd. The subscription allows for a 25% staff turnover rate; therefore, a subscription for 100 employees would allow for up to 125 Users to access the eLearning within a 12-month period. Only 100 Users would have access at any time but up to 25 additional Users could be archived within the subscription contract for 100 Users.
RENEWAL OF SUBSCRIPTION LICENCE
Unless cancelled in writing before the renewal date or a new subscription licence agreed, the subscription licence will automatically renew for a period of 12 months on the date of expiry, for the same number of users and at the same fee per user as the previous licence. Any client use of the eLearning Portal after the renewal date will be deemed to be acceptance of the renewed subscription.
USE OF eLEARNING CREDITS
eLearning Credits are valid for a period of 12 months. Courses purchased with eLearning Credits can be accessed by a User for a period of 12 months from the date the course is purchased. Courses that have not been started by a User may be reallocated to another User, at the discretion of BVS. Once a course has been started by a User, the User will have access to the course for a period of 30 days, and the course may not be reallocated to another User. If a User fails the assessment quiz at the end of the course 3 times the course will be marked as complete and failed and another credit will have to be used to reallocate the course to the User for any further attempts at the quiz. A certificate of completion will only be issued upon successful completion of the assessment quiz.
Usernames, if entered incorrectly, can only be changed by CareTutor Administrators, on request. User accounts cannot be reused for different individuals. User accounts being reused by different individuals is a breach of contract and is covered by CareTutor’s fair usage policy.
ACCOUNTS, USERNAME AND PASSWORDS
The Customer agrees not to disclose his/her Username and password to another party. As an Administrator the Customer will set up other User accounts according to the number of subscriptions the Customer has purchased. When the Customer sets up other User accounts, the Customer agrees to ensure each Username and password is only used by one person. CareTutor reserves the right to cancel subscriptions where multiple Users access the eLearning using one account.
FAIR USAGE POLICY
Access to the eLearning is subject to a fair usage policy, which is based on the average number of courses accessed, and the number of times courses are accessed, by Users

All Users are entitled to make up to three attempts to pass the quiz at the end of the eLearning Training Material. Once a User passes a quiz, he/she will be able to download the relevant CareTutor certificate. Should a User fail the three attempts, no certificate will be issued, and the User will need to be enrolled on the course again. Certificates issued by CareTutor are based on the answers provided by the User to the quizzes. CareTutor cannot guarantee that the User fully understands the subject and can perform his/her duties when being left on his/her own.
