This programme has a packed schedule, delivered over a three day timescale. The programme is accredited and approved by Qualsafe, the awarding organisation for First Aid training.

Our tutors are industry specialists with decades of first aid experience. The course is classroom based and includes ‘first aid simulation’ (practical, hands on examples of how to deal with a variety of first aid situations). This will, from time to time, involve learners undertaking role play with other learners.


The programme is assessed throughout, using a range of ongoing assessment methods. In addition, there are two multi-choice assessment papers that learners need to achieve to complete the course.
