  • Three Day Course
  • Certificate valid for 3 years
  • Ofqual regulated

This QUALSAFE approved RQF three-day course is practically as well as theoretically based and provides a high level of training. All our courses are run by trained, professional nurses and fire fighters and first aiders.

All of our Qualsafe First Aid courses can take a maximum of 12 students, each of whom receives a First Aid manual, certification and registration as well as gaining the knowledge and confidence to become a competent first aider.

The latest training equipment is used in all courses (training manikins are at a student ratio of 1:3), along with the use of PowerPoint presentations, lectures, and demonstrations and plenty of hands-on practice for all students.

Once the courses are completed, our students are assessed continually in their practical sessions and they have a Multiple Choice paper too and, if successful, will become recognised first aiders with a certificate valid for three years.

It’s essential that adequate provision for first aid cover is made at all times people are at work. Employers need to ensure there is cover for annual leave and other planned absences of first-aiders or appointed persons. They should also consider what cover is needed for unplanned and exceptional absences such as sick leave or special leave due to bereavement.
