First Aid

The starting point for selecting the right course is always going to be your context.

All First Aid courses are restricted to 12 participants per trainer as part of the European Resus Guidelines. If you want to train more people at once, you will need to have more than one trainer. These are requirements set out by the European Resus Council.

Choosing the right First Aid Course can be complex. There are a few key questions that you need to think through…

  1. What are the biggest risks faced in your work place, social club or home?
  2. Why do you want to train people in First Aid?
  3. How many people do you need to train?
  4. Do you require a regulated qualification or just skills? If you are not sure then tell your provider.
  5. How much time do you have for training?
  6. What budget do you have?

The RAS Team can help you establish which is the right course for you.

Emergency First Aid – one day                                      

Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this course satisfies the requirements as laid down by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The aim of this course is to ensure that Learners are provided the skills and knowledge to provide prompt and effective First Aider’s that can provide treatment in a confident, safe and effective manner.

 

First Aid at Work – three days

It is a requirement of the Health and Safety law that employers provide a safe and healthy environment to work in. If your assessment of First Aid needs highlights the need for qualified first aiders, then this Level III qualification will provide you with practical, hands-on skills.  This course satisfies the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

This comprehensive three-day course covers a wide range of emergencies, enabling learners to deal with emergency situations with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way.  Regulation states requalification is required every three years. After three years the course must be taken in full, however, at two years and ten months the learner is only required to take a two day refresher. The  learner must provide the orginal paper work for a valid First Aid at Work Certificate at the point of booking.
