FIRST AID AT WORK
The First Aid at Work qualification is ideal for individuals who intend to act as a workplace First Aider.
Our course equips Learners with the vital skills necessary to diagnose and treat injuries or illness, with an emphasis on dealing with life threatening situations until professional help arrives.
With years of experience dealing with real life emergencies, our expert trainers draw on their own first aid experiences to make learning fun and memorable. This ensures that learners leave with the confidence and vital life saving skills needed to deal with the wide range of situations that could arise in the workplace.
Certification of the Emergency First Aid Course is dependent on successful continuous assessment of the student. Assessment will be carried out through observation along with some written exercises. Whilst the written elements are straightforward, candidates require a basic command of English. Students who complete the course and are deemed to have reached the required standard are issued with a certificate which is valid for three years.
