Introduction: To become a qualified emergency first aider, learners will have to have successfully passed at least a one-day formal training course that is accredited through an awarding organisation (AO). The proposed course covers this requirement.

The course involves practical and multiple-choice assessments and you will receive a Certificate, valid for 2 years.
Who should attend?
This course is a regulated First Aid course. It is ideal for ‘nominated’ persons responsible for the First Aid provision in smaller low risk businesses or for people who provide support to qualified First Aiders in larger organizations and those with more complex risks. It is also the course required by Insurance Companies asking for a First Aid training qualification.
