Emergency First Aid at Work Course

22 reviews

From £95.00

If you’re looking to get qualified as a workplace first aider, this one day course is the course that most businesses choose. It’s perfect for all low risk work environments, such as offices, shop, etc.

Did you know – coffee machines with steam spouts contain a pressure vessel that require annual maintenance checks. The Health & Safety Executive indicates that workplaces with these machines are “higher risk”, increasing the level of first aid provision required.

This emergency first aid at work course is 100% classroom based. The course is certified by Chris Garland Training, or if you prefer it, certified by an Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation.

We also offer this course as a blended learning course; 2 hours online e-learning followed by 4+ hours classroom learning. This can also be certified in the same ways. >Click here if this is of interest.<
