Basic First Aid

The Basic First Aid course is designed to cover the main first aid subjects, where training is needed, but does not need to comply with HSE rules. It covers primary and some secondary skills allowing the flexibility to add extra subjects where needed. It is a half day course.  This course does not cover workplace training where the EFAW, FAW and Appointed Persons course is better suited.
