What’s covered in the course

The First Aid at Work level 3 course is delivered at your premises and our trainers will bring all of the necessary equipment with them, all you have to do is open the door.  Oh, and put the kettle on!

Being a First Aider is a responsible role.  You have to be prepared to deal with a multitude of different conditions from a cut finger, amputated finger, serious burn, head injury through to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).  As Fabrice Muamba, the footballer, demonstrated, even the youngest and fittest of people can suffer.  What would you do?  How should you react?  What do you do first?

We will answer these questions for you and more, giving you the skill, confidence and competence to deal with the main emergency situations, which may be enough to save a life!

A lot of providers realise how important it is that businesses have qualified first aiders employed - in fact it’s law.  They also know that by being a qualified first aider there is expectations upon an individual and they reflect this by hiking up the prices.  We don’t believe in this...

Our prices are the lowest you’ll find.  The simple reason is that we want to make training affordable to those that want  their staff to learn rather than just tick a box!

The fee covers costs, including a very informative professionally printed and bound first aid manual. Each delegate will receive, upon successfully completing this 3 day course, a certificate and wallet card.  The Level 3 qualification is valid for 3 years (it is recommended that all delegates do annual 3 hour refreshers, but this is not compulsory).  We will also provide you with copy certificates for your delegates to save you the job of copying them!  To find out the other ways we can help you manage your training - free of charge, please just ask!
