Basic First Aid

Course Overview

Qualification Course Length
Basic First Aid Half day

This introduction to first aid will teach you everyday first aid skills, which are invaluable when accidents happen around the home or when you are out and about. Unlike some basic first aid courses that don't include CPR, ours does. You will also learn how to effectively treat a choking adult, child, or baby and how to help someone with a minor bleed or burn.

Learners are taught how to check for responsiveness, open an airway, and check for breathing. Practical lessons include CPR, choking and the recovery position as well as applying dressings and slings.

Please note: The duration and content of this basic first aid course do not meet HSE requirements for the workplace. To learn first aid skills appropriate for use in the workplace you should complete a 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work or a 3-day First Aid at Work course.
