Emergency First Aid at work

This 1 day course allows attendees to act as workplace first aiders in regulatory terms. It is appropriate where the risk assessment determines that a full First Aid at Work award may not be necessary. No previous first aid experience is required to attend this course. Offices and Schools are generally regarded as low risk environments in first aid terms, and this award is therefore appropriate in most instances.

Previous attendee's comments:

To be honest I was not looking forward to this course at all, as I was sure it was going to be dull. It turned out to be completely the opposite! I thoroughly enjoyed this day and found it really useful. I will be advising others to attend.

Session was very informative as well as entertaining! I now have a cleare understanding of the role of an EVC and feel more confident in taking up the position.
