It is becoming more of a requirement that people have their emergency first aid qualification and it is looked upon favourably by employers when applying for a job. If you are a professional looking after children, or coaching in a sporting or fitness environment, we believe it is your professional responsibility to ensure you know how to deal with adverse situations.
Our Emergency first aid at work course covers everything you need. We make sure, that should you need to use these newly learned skills, that you will be competent. We run small group training only and there are plenty of mannequins to make sure you get lots of hands on practice and feedback. Unlike many courses our tutors are practicing medical professionals and have done CPR and first aid regularly and have professional experience working in busy Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments.
During the course you will cover:
- Common Medical Conditions
- And much more!
