This high quality, fun and practical Emergency First Aid at Work one-day course is designed to give you the skills and confidence needed should a first aid situation arise during the course of your practice. It is suitable for individuals looking for a course which will cover all of the essential life saving first aid techniques and for members of small to medium sized, low hazard workplaces.
No previous first aid experience is required to attend.
The course covers CPR, choking, minor injuries (small cuts, grazes and bruises, minor burns and scalds, small splinters), circulation problems (external bleeding and treatment for shock), and incident management following Health and Safety approved code of practice guidelines incorporating current best practice from around the world.
Attendees will receive:
1). A First Aid Certificate will be posted to you after completion of the course.
Certificates are valid for 3 years and are issued by the awarding organisation ITC First.
2). A full set of course notes, designed to save you taking copious notes and act as an aid memoir after the course is completed.
The Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work was introduced by the Health and Safety Executive in October 2009 and also made part of the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF).
