Who should attend?
This course is designed for people who want to receive our most thorough first aid training. It is most suited to those working in high-risk environments, such as building sites or warehouses.
Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.

What are the different learning styles for this course?

Non-Consecutive learning is entirely classroom-based, however, the 3 days are spread across 3 weeks.
Blended learning is run in 2 parts:

This part of the course is self-directed and is expected to take a day to complete. You can complete the modules at your own pace in your own environment providing you with the flexibility you need. The online training must be completed within 6 weeks before your face-to-face training.
