Online Course Description

Ideal for all low-risk work environments, this course is suitable for all organisations and businesses who wish to learn new first aid skills and practices, or even refresh their existing knowledge.

The course is suitable for anyone (over the age of 16) who might need to provide responsible first aid care in the workplace; it will enable learners to have the confidence required to respond quickly and effectively to a wide range of accidents, illnesses and injuries that may occur while at work.

Divided into seven structured modules, the course covers the bases of major first aid practices such as CPR on adults, children and infants. It also covers various scenarios, ranging from minor injuries such as strains and sprains and faintings, to more severe ones like strokes, heart attacks, seizures and anaphylaxis.

A great course

I have done a few of these courses and really like them. A good price but also really good content and set out well. I have to do these courses as part of my job role and these are by the online courses that have kept me interested, concise information and not too long. All the information is relevant, so many courses waffle on.
