1 day emergency first aid at work training
Our Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work one day course provides training for basic lifesaving first aid, covering workplace health and safety regulations.
This course runs over a minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.
All learners will be given the skills and knowledge to provide emergency and lifesaving first aid and provide quick and safe treatment to their casualties.
We have also developed an Emergency First Aid at Work driver CPC module, which can contribute to the mandatory seven hours of Driver CPC periodic training required for professional drivers.
The important thing to remember is that as soon as the certificate expires the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace, therefore we recommend you book all future training before current certificates expire.
