One of the most beneficial courses you could ever attend is a first aid training course. You never know when you may need to assist someone who has fallen ill or become injured. We can never predict when these skills may be necessary. However, it is always best to be fully prepared. After all, you could one day have to provide first aid to a member of your family and we want you to be confident in your ability to do so.
First aid is the first and immediate assistance given to any person suffering from either a minor or serious illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery. Our highly professional and knowledgeable team of trainers provide a number of first aid courses in Ellesmere Port for businesses and individuals. Our courses are available at different levels and we can cater for the needs of different organisations and their diverse work forces. Our first aid courses are interactive, informative and completely jargon free.
1 Day Emergency First Aid at Work
It is recommended that at least 1 person for every 50 people, in a low risk workplace, is appointed as a first aider. Employers must also ensure that others are trained to cover absence. This course prepares individuals to provide first aid treatment in emergency situations, when a person injures themselves or falls ill.
3 Day First Aid at Work
This course is designed to educate candidates in the best ways to treat colleagues who have been injured in the workplace. As well as the basic care needed to treat minor injuries and illnesses, candidates attending this course will also learn how to assist casualties who are experiencing a heart attack, stroke, severe allergic reaction, asthma attack and much more.
2 Day First Aid at Work Requalification
Aimed at those who wish to refresh their first aid at work qualification. First aiders must requalify every 3 years in order to meet statutory requirements. You can take this course up to 90 days prior to the expiry of your current first aid certificate, and up to 28 days after expiry date.
First Aid Annual Refresher Course
All qualified first aiders are recommended to attend an annual 3 hour refresher course, including candidates who have taken both the 1 day, and the 3 day first aid at work training course. The course is designed to ensure first aiders are still able to confidently carry out appropriate first aid (especially if they have not had the opportunity to use these skills in real life). The course will also inform candidates of any changes to protocols.
2 Day Paediatric First Aid Course
The paediatric first aid course meets Ofsted Early Years and Childcare Register requirements. The course covers all aspects of caring for a sick or injured child. Candidates will learn about the emergency situations that may arise when looking after children and young people. Topics that will be covered throughout this course include putting a child in the recovery position, checking for breathing, choking, CPR, bleeding and more.
Mental Health First Aid Course
This course is designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health illness and how to help those in need. Throughout this course, candidates will gain a wealth of knowledge on mental health and how to spot the signs and triggers, as well as the skills necessary to reassure and support someone in distress. The training is split up into 4 sections covering a number of topics. The course is designed to help candidates maintain a non- judgemental approach to mental health and to feel confident in stepping forward to support those suffering from mental health illness.
