First Aid Training

The courses are run by approved trainers and are suitable for all employees, whether office, workshop or field based.

Duration – There are four face-to-face first aid courses we currently offer –

  • Appointed Persons – 4+ hours 
  • Emergency First Aid at Work – 6+ hours 
  • First Aid at Work – 18+ hours, split over three days 
  • First Aid at Work (Refresher) – 12+ hours, split over two days 
  • Outdoor First Aid – 12+ hours, split over two days (this is a course with much time spent outdoors in areas such as woods and hillsides and as such may not suit everyone) 

Methods – The courses are lively and practical with each key teaching point covered by a trainer demonstration and candidate practice.  Media presentations are also used to re-enforce the teaching points.  The course is continually assessed and has a multiple choice question paper as a final assessment tool.  Evidence is gathered during the course to demonstrate candidate competency which, combined with the question paper, are maintained by the awarding body as evidence.

Outcomes – Candidates will be confident in managing all of the required learning outcomes as set out by the HSE and ILCOR.  Each candidate will receive a certificate from the awarding body.

Group size – the requirements of the HSE courses limit course size to 12 delegates.
