Course duration:

  • The guidance is that this course should be run over a minimum of 8 hours with the instructor, with a further 1 hour of self-study. We feel that there is a lot to learn during the 8 hours, so we also offer this as a two day course for those who want greater face-to-face training.

Test:

  • Practical assessments throughout the course & multiple choice test at the end.

Pre-requisites:

  • Attendees will be required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real activity environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore you must be physically capable of doing so.

  • The course is aimed at those over 16 who are looking to undertake the responsibilities associated with being a nominated first aider. The course can also be undertaken by candidates between 14 & 16 years old, but they shouldn’t be relied upon by employers to be a sole, nominated first aider.
