Our Virtual First Aid at Work Course delivers a minimum of 18 hours of virtual classroom based theory and face-to-face practical instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 12 delegates.
This Regulated Qualification is ideal for anyone wishing to become an first aider. In work environments where there are more significant health and safety risks, it is more likely that a trained first aider will be required. The HSE cannot tell employers what provision is required for first aid, as the nature of businesses and organisations is so different. First aid provision must be 'adequate and appropriate in the circumstances', meaning employers must provide sufficient equipment, facilities and personnel at all times.
Throughout the duration of the course, delegates will be assessed when carrying out a number of practical exercises including CPR, use of an AED, unconscious casualties, wounds, bleeding and shock, secondary surveys and management of fractures.
This course consists of a virtual lecture (using Zoom/Microsoft Teams), DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.
