First aid is not difficult to learn.  This course covers keeping yourself safe as well as lessons on critical injury pack’s, trauma dressings and haemostatic dressings.

The course is broken down into short videos and once you complete the course you can download your free certificate. To support the training you will be able to download a student manual that covers many different first aid subjects and other downloads and links to support your training.

You do not need any first aid knowledge to start this course and it is suitable for all ages.

Our Pro Trainings online platform is super simple to navigate. Watch the video lessons at your own pace, pause and resume when it suits you. Answer the incremental multiple-choice questions throughout the course and when you have completed all the lessons, you will be directed to the final assessment.

Additional information

Why not book a practical session where our own instructor will provide hands on assessment and provide the manikins to complement the training?

There will be a small charge for practical sessions based on the number of students. There is no additional travel expense for schools in Cambridgeshire and neighbouring counties.

Classroom practical courses on site are subject to our risk assessment. The Bridge First aid is proud to offer socially distanced first aid where space allows. We have over 36 new adult, child, and infant manikins so training is safe and uninterrupted. These CPR Manikins are brand new and the latest model for 2020 where the air expelled from the lungs is vented out the back of the head.

Each learner will have their own dedicated manikin for the duration of the practical training. These manikins have electronic wireless feedback on compression depth and speed and chest recoil parameters. This is both fun and helpful as students can adjust their own technique in real time.

Our instructors who visit schools are DBS checked, and well accustomed to working with a broad demographic as well as learners with special educational needs.
