Emergency first aid at work


This comprehensive first aid course provides each candidate with the fundamental practical and life-saving skills to deal with common medical emergencies. This is one of our 5* Premium courses and much in demand where people and organisations need First Aid Certification.

Not many individuals are confronted with emergency situations in our daily lives, where we have to react. But what if a scenario occurred either at home, in the workplace or at a sporting event? Would we be prepared? This course provides you with a complete breakdown of what is required as a basic first aider, from the most common situations of cleaning a wound and sticking a plaster on it, to the more serious situations of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillators).

Who is this for?

This course is intended for those who wish to gain an understanding of first aid required in an emergency situation. According to the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007, it requires employers to provide the necessary first aid training within the workplace. Typically, it includes people in offices, hospitality, teachers, parents, and also those involved in sport.
