  • If you’re an individual looking to take a course, no problem, have a look at our range of courses instead.

Important update:

From 1st January 2017 additional training and assessment requirements will be applicable to those delivering regulated qualifications in First Aid. Approved centres will be required to train and assess the use of Automated External Defibrillators.  The optional assessment logbooks for both the Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work and Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work have been updated to reflect this.

The Health & Safety Executive also recommends that workplace first aid training and resources include the use of haemostatic dressings and tourniquets for the control of catastrophic bleeding according to each employer’s First Aid Needs Assessment.  According to RIDDOR data, examples of industries that may particularly benefit from additional training in the use of haemostatic dressings/tourniquets include construction, agriculture, glass work, forestry and certain manufacturing sectors.
