This training fulfills the needs by allowing the first aider to demonstrate continued competencies via our approved training centre. The key skills the HSE recommends that trained first aiders demonstrate annually in a refresher course are: BLS / Choking / Wounds & Bleeding / Maintaining a Patients Airway. We deliver this training in an informal workshop style using scenario based skills stations for your staff.
All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Guidelines as per the HSE requirements (2015 are the latest guidelines). Remote First Aid only deliver qualifications recognised by the HSE as either via an Awarding Organisation or Trade Body.
This qualification specification outlines key information required by employers and learners to ensure they are able to make an informed decision in regards to the qualifications they are undertaking. It is recommended that those undertaking this training hold literacy and numeracy skills at Level 2 as a minimum. No previous first aid knowledge is required to attend. Learners must be aged 16 years plus to operate as a first aider in the workplace. Those successfully completing this training, will meet the HSE requirements for first aiders in the workplace where an employers needs assessment has deemed this necessary.
