Responding to anaphylactic reactions is an ideal course both as a standalone course or also as a bolt-on to other first aid courses on offer too.

You will gain the knowledge, skills, and understanding how to administer first aid to a casualty that is suffering from anaphylaxis and also learn how to perform CPR in an emergency.

Anaphylactic reactions can happen at any time and usually with little warning, you will learn about common anaphylaxis triggers and how to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction and learning how to recognise anaphylaxis.

This course is Ofqual approved and meets the requirements of UK Resuscitation Council guidelines too.

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’.
