Who should attend?
This course is designed for people who want to receive our most thorough first aid training.
What you will learn
The content of the course will cover how to deal with the following:
|The role of the first aider||Head injuries|
|Managing an emergency||Health and safety (first aid) regulations|
|Communication and casualty care||Low blood sugar|
|Bleeding (minor and severe)||Resuscitation (adult CPR)|
|Bone, muscle and joint injuries||Seizures (adult)|
|Burns and scalds||Severe allergic reaction|

Previously, students who attended our first aid courses were required to pass a final practical assessment. This has been replaced with continuous observation by the trainer and written assessments.
Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example 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, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
Successful candidates receive a St John Ambulance certificate, valid for three years.
