Who should take this online course

It is the employer’s responsibility to determine whether a workplace requires a first aider, or whether it is sufficient to have an appointed person to be in charge of medical emergencies.

This online First Aid course is suitable for anyone who has been selected for the role of Appointed Person in the workplace, or anyone exploring the possibility of becoming one.

For those looking to expand their knowledge, this course works well alongside our First Aid in the Workplace online training,  or online Paediatric First Aid training for those in childcare settings.
