Emergency First Aid Course

Course Overview

This is one of our most popular First Aid courses and provides a good basic insight into First Aid procedures and skills. Innovative scenarios and practical exercises help delegates to learn basic life support skills and to improve their chances of coping in an emergency. The course content can be adapted to suit the needs of your organisation.

Who is it for?

If a First Aider is not legally required, an employer must still appoint a person to take charge of first aid provision, and this course provides that person with the necessary knowledge to do so. This course is also ideal for individuals, lone workers or employees of smaller low risk organisations. This course is often the minimum requirement for sports coaches, instructors and support workers.

Topics covered:

  • Understand the role of the Emergency First Aider including reference to the use of available equipment and the need for recording incidents and actions
  • Understand the importance of basic hygiene in first aid procedures
  • Assess the situation and circumstances in order to act safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency
  • Demonstrate how to administer first aid safely, promptly and effectively to a casualty who is unconscious and / or in seizure
  • Demonstrate how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation promptly and effectively
  • Demonstrate how to administer first aid safely, promptly and effectively to a casualty who is wounded or bleeding and or / in shock
  • Administer first aid safely, promptly and effectively to a casualty who is choking
  • Provide first aid for minor injuries
  • Client specific areas such as choking, epilepsy and diabetes can be included

Course Objectives

By the end of the course the delegate will have covered how to:
  • Give emergency First Aid to an injured person until medical assistance arrives
  • Recognise and appropriately treat most emergency situations
  • Carry out the duties of an Emergency First Aider as specified within the First Aid Regulations

Assessment

All students are continually assessed by the instructor and there is a short multiple choice question paper at the end of the course. Any assessment is carried out in a "low key" manner with the emphasis on teaching rather than assessment.
