Event description


About the course

The objective of this qualification is to support learners in becoming emergency first aiders in the workplace. The content of the qualification meets the HSE requirements for training emergency first-aiders in those organisations that have identified that staff need to be trained to this level within their first-aid needs assessment.

The qualification covers knowledge such as the roles and responsibilities of the first aider, how to assess an incident and recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness. The qualification also covers first aid skills in CPR and use of an AED, providing first aid to a casualty who is choking and dealing with external bleeding and hypovolaemic shock.

In line with guidance provided by the HSE, the qualification supports/approves work place first aiders for a period of 3 years, after which point learners will need to retake the course. In addition to this, it is recommended that learners refresh their knowledge annually.

When you work with us to train you or your first aiders, you can be sure that you’re getting the best training to meet your legal obligations now the new regulations have been implemented.

Is the course assessed?

Practical observation

The practical assessment is completed throughout the course delivery. This ongoing assessment will involve learners demonstrating practical first aid skills.

Written and Oral Questioning

Learners must provide a short response to set questions within a learner pack covering underpinning knowledge of first aid.


Changes to first aid regulations came into force on 1st of October 2013, and removed the requirement for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to approve first aid training providers. The removal of the HSE approval process gives you as a participant, and small business, greater flexibility to choose your own first aid training provider. This helps to ensure that the first aid training you get is right for your workplace, based on your own needs assessment and individual practitioner and business needs.
