First Aid At Work

The courses introduce topics in a logical sequence using a range of presentational methods including PowerPoint, video and numerous practical sessions and “desktop exercises” aimed at helping each candidate, no matter what their individual learning style, assimilate the required knowledge and skills while gaining the confidence to use what they learn. Each exercise scenario is tailored to apply to the workplaces of the candidates attending the course.

Delivery

First Aid at Work training is normally delivered over three days, with ongoing practical assessments and multiple choice question papers. These three days can be delivered on a schedule that suits the customer’s requirements, as long as each candidate completes the training within ten weeks. However, we recommend one of the following formats:

  • Three consecutive days
  • Three individual days spread over a maximum of three weeks.

(While it is legal to complete this course within a ten week timeframe, experience shows that the more spread out these courses are the more difficulties candidates experience in terms of continuity, practice and revision.)

The First Aid at Work Refresher course is delivered over two days.

Please note that, if required, any of our training courses can be delivered at weekends.
