First Aid Training Courses at your Workplace
First Aid at Work
There are two levels of Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommended First Aid course. Before deciding which level to choose a First Aid Needs Assessment must be carried out. The two levels of HSE recommended First Aid course are:
Emergency First Aid At Work (1 day)
This short course is for smaller and lower risk workplaces. It covers emergency protocols only and is suitable for nominated First Aiders. The aim of the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is to enable a candidate to be able to act as an appointed person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements, including looking after the First Aid supplies and calling the emergency services when required. It meets the standards required to help comply with Health and Safety (First aid) regulations.
First Aid At Work (3 day)
This course is for larger and higher risk workplaces, the course is longer and covers more topics. The First Aid At Work qualification aims to create a level of competence in First Aid skills for the workplace. This course provides confidence in delivering the practical skills needed by First Aiders in most workplaces. It meets the standards required to help comply with Health and Safety (First aid) regulations.
Paediatric First Aid
These Level 3 course are suitable for people caring for infants from birth and children to puberty. If you are caring for infants in the Early Years Foundation Stage (aged 0 to 5 years inclusive) it is important to note that new legislation requires all newly qualified child carers to have Paediatric First Aid training. Early Years childcare providers can choose to train their staff to hold either the full Paediatric First Aid qualification (2 day course) or the shorter Emergency Paediatric First Aid certificate (1 day course). It is a legal requirement for at least one person with a valid full Paediatric First Aid qualification (2 day course) to be available at all times within a professional child care establishment.
