By putting your staff through our emergency first aid at work training course, you can rest assured that they are prepared if disaster strikes. Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we deliver this one-day course as a replacement for the old appointed person course. It is suitable for employers who have identified a requirement for emergency first aiders in their workplace after completing a first aid needs assessment.
The focus of the course is preventing situations from becoming worse and learning the vital life-saving skills that a trained emergency first aider can use until help arrives. Our instructors deliver dynamic courses that relate the subjects being taught to real-life situations. This approach makes our training more applicable to your first aiders. Due to the widespread availability of this course, it has also become a popular option for anyone requiring basic first aid training for a variety of situations outside the workplace.
This QCF training course is designed for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary or community activities, to provide first aid when dealing with an emergency situation. It provides learners with the knowledge and skills needed to deal with a range of emergency situations and to demonstrate the practical administration of safe, prompt first aid in emergency situations.

Identification must be brought to the course, such as a driver’s licence (plastic card), passport, or ID card.
The combined first aid at work and paediatric first aid course is ideal for those who work in settings that require both first aiders and paediatric first aiders, such as schools, sports clubs, and other childcare settings. The course combines the QA level 3 award in First Aid at Work (RQF) and the QA level 3 award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF) into three extended days of classroom learning. It is a specially designed, Ofqual-regulated course that enables candidates to gain the skills and knowledge needed to provide both adult and paediatric first aid, while minimising the number of training days required to achieve both qualifications. Candidates will cover a range of topics needed to provide effective first aid for adults, children, and infants, including CPR and defibrillation, choking, strokes, head injuries, and asthma. Upon completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate that is valid for three years.
