About this First Aid Awareness Training Course

Our Emergency First Aid Awareness course will equip your staff with the necessary skills to meet the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Accidents happen, but when it comes to serious emergencies, a lot of people do not feel confident in their abilities to help. Lack of knowledge and confidence could cost someone their life. An Emergency First Aid Awareness training course will equip you with the skills to keep a heart beating for that bit longer.

This online course will teach you how to recognise emergency situations, how to manage incidents appropriately and how to safely administer first aid. You will also learn basic life support, controlling the bleeding, strains and sprains and how to examine a casualty. Our First Aid Awareness course is aimed at any low-risk workplace (offices, shops or restaurants) who wish to teach their employees new first aid skills or refresh their existing skills. However, if you require a fully qualified first aider, please take a look at our Emergency First Aid at Work training course here.
