Frequently Asked Questions
These lesson plans can be delivered by teachers, higher-level
teaching assistants, school nurses and youth leaders who have a
current first aid qualification. The qualification must cover all
of the topics included in this course.
If you need any additional first aid support to answer your
students’ questions, all the information in the lessons is taken
from the current edition of the
First Aid Manual.
All our resources are suitable for 7-16-year-olds.
If you’ve completed one of our tailored courses with your
students we have certificates you can issue to them. All you need
