Our Emergency First Aid Awareness course provides all attendees with a clear understanding of first aid and how to manage incidents in the correct manner. Our training will ensure all attendees have the ability to act upon an incident with full confidence. By the end of the course the delegates will have the ability to recognise and identify the causes of an incident and inform the emergency services, alongside having the correct skills to provide appropriate care until the emergency services arrive. Our emergency first aid awareness course is structured with the intent of assisting attendees looking to become an ‘appointed person’ in their place of work. However, this course would benefit all members of staff in order to spread general awareness of first aid.
