Project Description

First Aid at Work

This 3-day course provides a more comprehensive first aid course. Ideal for those who work in a more hazardous environment or need a First Aid at Work for HSE requirements.

Our three-day First Aid at Work course will provide you with comprehensive First Aid Skills that follow the HSE requirements for work areas that have more significant health and safety risks.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants a more in-depth first aid course or need a FAW for work purposes.

We believe the best way to learn first aid is practical scenarios and applying the first aid knowledge gained, with less time flicking through PowerPoint slides.

So if you want a more immersive, fun and practical first aid course for your work book with us now.

We can tailor first aid courses to suit your working environment. Please contact us with your requirements.

The course also includes a multiple choice questionnaire and assessed practical session.
