ITC Certificate in Emergency First Aid at Work

The Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is ideal for low hazard environments (eg offices, shops, libraries) or where your needs assessment identifies a requirement for a first aider trained in emergency first aid at work. This qualification meets statutory requirements for Emergency First Aid at Work purposes.

Successful completion of the course will result in knowledge and skills that have been identified by the HSE for the safe, effective and prompt treatment of injuries and illness in the workplace.

I would just like to send my sincere thanks for the first aid course last week. I thought you had a great balance of practice and theory, and it was the most enjoyable first aid course I have done!

Found the course very worthwhile and beneficial especially the AED training part of it. I had no idea how simple they are to use. Ali – May 2019

Good course, well taught. There is a lot of info to remember and it was delivered in a fashion that was easy to remember and I now feel confident as a first aider. Thanks.

This was a very well run, professional course and I enjoyed it thoroughly and I feel I learned a lot. Alex –  September 2019
