Emergency First Aid at Work is ideal for LOW-risk workplaces such as offices and small businesses or companies.

This emergency first aid at work course will equip you with essential lifesaving skills, you will learn how to safely manage an unconscious casualty and give CPR to a casualty who is not breathing and you will have the confidence and competence to use an AED in an emergency and put the casualty into the recovery position too.

You will also learn how to provide treatment for minor injuries such as burns, scalds, bites, cuts, grazes, wounds, bleeds and seizures and quite a bit more too in an intense but fun 6 hours tutor-led training.

Emergency first aid at work is a regulated qualification and approved by Ofqual and accredited by Qualifications Network and meets current HSE and UK Resuscitation Council guidelines.

Regulated Qualifications:

We only deliver Regulated Qualifications, so what is a regulated qualification and what does it mean for you the employer or business owner?

A regulated qualification is a qualification that is provided through an ‘Awarding Organisation’ that is recognised and regulated by a UK regulator such as Ofqual if you are in England.

Business owners and employers who we have supplied first aid training too are now leaning towards a ‘Regulated Qualification’ rather than an ‘In-House’ qualification because the certification for a regulated qualification demonstrates that the learner has attended a qualification course that is approved by a UK regulator and also accredited by an ‘Awarding Organisation’.
