EMERGENCY FIRST AID AT WORK

Is this course for me?

It is for anyone that works in a low risk environment where there are minimal hazards or where your risk assessment identifies the course to be the most appropriate. If there are frequent hazards or a higher degree of risk then please consider the full 3 Day First Aid at Work as this course covers a wider range of medical conditions and incidents.

Pre-requisites
