The First Aid at Work course, covered over 3 days, will qualify you as a First Aider and will enable you to deal with an accident or injury in the workplace. It will qualify you to diagnose a variety of possible illnesses and injuries and will enable you to assess the need to seek further medical attention.
At the end of the course there is a written exam and trainees must demonstrate the skills and knowledge learnt during the course, when there will be some hands on floor work. Trainees will receive a certificate at the end of the course and the qualification lasts for three years.
Please consult the ESCC First Aid policy which sets out how many trained First Aiders are required, and what their responsibilities are.
First Aid at Work covers a wide range of topics within its syllabus including:
Parking around St. Mary's House is very limited, though the railway station car park is some 6 minutes walk at a charge of (about) £5 per day.
Corporate Training offer a selection of teas/coffees, hot chocolate and biscuits.
