Visit our which course do I need page for additional information.

This course is also available as a blended delivery with part 1 online and part two as a morning only in the classroom.

All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2017 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent changes.

What to expect and how to prepare for your classroom training.

On arrival, you will be given a debrief. Hand sanitiser, training props, individual manikins, and everything you need for the course is provided. Come with an open mind and burning questions.

Our instructors are experienced in creating and facilitating a non-judgemental and entertaining learning environment. We encourage participants to take away this attitude into their own lives following the training. All learners are made to feel safe and included, and we often see the group bond as a result.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring some photo ID, as is required in order to validate this award.

You may wish to bring a notebook for any additional notes. Covid-19 secure refreshments are complementary throughout the training, but we do ask you to bring your own favourite mug, and your lunch.

We are also fully aware of the anxiety that many students have over coming into a public space. There is a lot to think about which we have already thought about. You are in safe hands.

Anything else? 

Your instructor will send you an e mail a couple of days prior to the classroom training, so that you have their contact details should you be running late, or have additional accessibility requirements.

This course can also be delivered on site at a reduced group fee (subject to our risk assessment)
