I found the course straight forward and informative. It was delivered with a common sense approach that teaches you practical skills in a realistic manner. Thanks Phil. Richard, March 2019.
This course has been designed to provide individuals with basic first aid knowledge. It is ideal for those working in low hazard environments or where a needs assessment has identified that there is insufficient first aid cover in a particular department. This programme is perfect for employees looking to develop the fundamental basics, prior to further first aid training (such as the 3 day First Aid at Work course).
There are no specific entry requirements for this programme. .
Course Aims and Outline:
Candidates attending the course will cover the following areas:
- Roles and responsibilities of a first aider
- Incident & casualty assessment
- CPR and use of an AED (defibrillator)
- Body check and recovery position

Accredited by Qualsafe, this is a one-day programme, taught in the classroom. It includes ‘first aid simulation’ (practical, hands on examples of how to deal with a first aid situation). This will involve learners undertaking role play with other learners.

Candidates attending will receive a first aid book and a certificate accredited by Qualsafe.
“Very good course, the trainer very engaging & approachable. I feel confident I will be a competent first aider if needed to treat an injury or maintain good treatment whilst an ambulance was en route. It was very engaging. Loved doing the practical bits as that helps the information stick in your memory.” Fleur, October 2018.
