3 Day First Aid at Work Course

Who is the First Aid at Work course Aimed at?

By law, every workplace must have at least one employee who is competent and capable of administering first aid. Our First Aid at Work training course is ideal for employees or staff members who hold this responsibility, and are looking to become a fully qualified first aider.

What are the topics covered on the course?

This 3-day course will give each candidate the required knowledge and skills to become a competent first aider in the workplace. While the 1-Day Emergency First Aid course covers basic skills, this 3-Day course is more in-depth; in addition to providing the same basic training, it also educates candidates on additional topics like hyperventilation, angina, heart attack and stroke victims.

Upon completion of the course, all attendees will receive an HSE-approved training certificate, valid for three years.
