First Aid at Work Training
We offer a comprehensive range of first aid at work courses ranging from half day to 3 day courses including use of tourniquet and haemostatic dressing as well as resuscitation and defibrillation.
Elements of these courses are now available online and being live streamed using ‘Zoom‘. It’s the same great training achieving high levels of interaction and is still being delivered by a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Where required all course materials are provided in advance of training, all you need is access to the internet and a suitable device (computer, laptop, I-pad or similar) to join in.
“The general consensus is that the course was very good with excellent training props, particularly for catastrophic bleeds, blocked airway & use of defibrillators. A very worthwhile & relevant course.”
“Brilliant pace and refreshers are so important, especially when it has been a while since training – it is good for your own confidence!”
“Very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. I appreciated that the course was tailored to our needs”
