I did Paediatric first aid course today and also did the top up online course. The online course was easy to navigate and could do it at my own pace which worked around my working shifts.Then I did the face to face course today. Ian Bennington was friendly down to earth and professional, he put us at ease straight away. He explained everything clearly and made sure we understood what to do.Highly recommended

Throughout the years I have taken various first aid courses, however as a first time mum I decided to take the paediatric first aid course so I could learn first aid techniques specifically for babies and children. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the course but it far exceeded any expectations I had. The course was well organized and the instructor Dr Emma was brilliant. This is the first time I’ve had a medical professional teach me a first aid course and I can honestly said it made such a difference in how the course was taught. Dr Emma broke the first aid course down into simple and easy techniques to remember and I felt a lot more prepared and confident by the end of the class. Highly recommend this class!

Your Responsibilities as an employer

Low Risk Environments

A low-risk workplace, such as a small office should have a first-aid box and appointed persons responsible for first aid. Please ensure there is adequate first aid cover if your appointed person is off site, ill or on annual leave. Everyone involved, employees, managers and appointed persons should be aware of the arrangements for first aid. They must also be confident that they have the required skills to complete their duties in a medical emergency. As an employer you must provide information about first-aid arrangements to your employees. We Recommend – As a minimum, we recommend your appointed persons completes our 1 day, Emergency at Work First Aid Course and the annual refresher.

High Risk Workplaces

Those workplaces where there are more significant health and safety risks will most likely need at least one fully trained first aider and adequate cover if your first aider is off site, ill or on annual leave. We Recommend – As a minimum, we recommend you train your first aiders with the full, 3 day, First Aid at Work course.

First Aid Courses FAQ’s

What is First Aid?

First aid is the immediate care given to a person suffering from either a minor or serious injury or illness. The care provided by a first aider may be required to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery. It includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while waiting for an ambulance. In minor cases it may simply involve applying a bandage.

Can you do a first aid course online?

As all industry standard first aid courses has to involve skills based teaching and assessments, fully online courses are not suitable if this is the standard you wish to meet. However, blended courses are an option and are invaluable. This is where you can complete part of the theory based course content online, leaving less time on a face-to-face course, which in these uncertain Covid times, is a great method of training your staff in the safest way possible. However, please note that not all courses are available as blended learning. If unsure, please give us a call on 01352 781965.

How long does it take to do a First Aid course?

First Aid courses take between 1 and 3 days to complete. Emergency First Aid at Work is a one day course. The full, First Aid at Work course is 3 days. The latter can be reduced to 2 face to face days when blended learning is used.
