The flexibility of our courses allow you to add additional materials in your sessions. For example, if you feel that you would benefit from the Emergency first aid at work course but you would like to add additional information on sprains & strains we can easily adapt your course to allow this.
Emergency First Aid at work
1 day course (or 6 hours)
This is our most popular course as most businesses/groups require named first aiders. Our course covers a full range of areas such as the recovery position, CPR, choking and minor injuries but also allows us the flexibility to include other elements free of charge that you feel would be relevant to you. Please feel free to contact us for more information on making this session bespoke to your needs. Available as a full 6 hour day course or split over evenings & weekends.
First on scene
3 hour course (or 18hrs)
This is a very popular course for people who don't wish to gain a formal qualification, but would like a basic knowledge of all of the main first aid issues you are likely to come across. The course covers the recovery position, CPR, choking and minor injuries but as this course does not carry an official certification it also allows us to adapt the course to make it relevant to your needs. Available as a morning, afternoon or evening session. Please feel free to contact us for more information on making this session bespoke.
First Aid at work
3 day course
This is a much more in-depth course and covers pretty much everything you will ever need to know in a first aid situation. It is often completed by people who want to ensure that they are fully competent for example your main first aider in charge. The course covers an additional 2 days of content to the emergency first aid at work qualification due to this. The course not only teaches you what to do in each situation but also gives you the knowledge of why it happens and therefore allows you to make a better judgement of how to treat the injury. Please be aware that we do not advise this course for under 16s, given the complexity and graphic nature of the content.
First Aid at work requalification
2 day course
This course is only suitable for those who have previously completed the first aid at work course. Your previous certification must be valid within 1 month of completing this course. During your time with us we will update you with any changes to legislation alongside reminding you of any of the skills/knowledge you may need to brush up on.
Emergency Paediatric First aid

Available as a full 6 hour day course or 2 x 3 hour morning (9-12am) or evening sessions (7.30 - 10.30pm) Other times available upon request.
Paediatric first aid
2 day course

CPR & AED
1 day course
Many places of work and indeed public spaces now have the use of an automated external defibrillator machine.
