First Aid

New First Aid guidance on 1st October 2013

HSE approval for First Aid training organisations ended on 1st October 2013. After that, it is up to First Aid training organisations to do one or all of 3 things:

• Offer Ofqual qualifications in First Aid
• Become a member of a trade body to maintain quality
• do nothing at all.

As we pride ourselves on the quality of our training, we will be doing the 1st two things on that list.
We are a member of the Federation of First Aid Training Organisations (FOFATO) which demonstrates our commitment to quality First Aid training and service.

And we will also offer accredited Ofqual qualifications in First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid should our customers require it.
Further information on the HSE's changes can be found here:

Teaching is carried out using a variety of techniques, including scenarios, practical demonstrations and practice, various audio - visual media and hands on work.

A current First Aid Manual is provided for reference and revision purposes.
