What to expect from this course

This comprehensive 3-day course is for people intending to act as a First Aider at Work. It is designed to give the First Aider the skills necessary to give effective life support, diagnose and treat injuries or illness, and maintain care and comfort of the casualty.

This course can be combined with a Schools First Aid course so that learners are able to provide first aid for both children and adults.

Staff working with children under 5 years can complete our accredited paediatric e-learning module before attending the training day, enabling them to meet EYFS & OFSTED requirements for the Full Paediatric First Aid certificate.

Potential First Aiders should possess an aptitude to absorb knowledge & skills, be able to cope with stressful and physically demanding emergency situations and have duties that do not prevent them from going immediately to an emergency.

Subjects covered include:

  • Aims and principles of first aid
