Course description

It is a requirement of the Health & Safety Regulations that employers provide a safe and healthy environment for their employees. If the assessment of the First Aid needs highlights the requirement for qualified First Aiders, then this course will provide you with suitable, highly trained personnel. This comprehensive three-day course covers a wide range of First Aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with an emergency situation with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. This course will provide the participants with a nationally recognised Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work.

Who should attend?

Those working in higher hazard environments (light engineering, assembly work, warehousing, construction, machinery) and will be responsible for 5 people or more. Also suitable for those working in a lower hazard environments (libraries, offices, shops) and responsible for more than 50 employees. Guidelines from Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.


Course Duration

A minimum of 18 hours spread over at least 3 days. Ideally, the course should be run over 3 consecutive days, but we have the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs if you so desire.

It is strongly recommended that all first aiders attend an annual refresher programme of a minimum three hours duration.



All students will be subject to on-going assessment during the course in order to ensure that they are able to act safely, promptly and effectively when dealing with a casualty who is unresponsive, requires CPR and who is wounded and bleeding.
