First Aid at Work Course – Blended  (33% online + 67% classroom)

The First Aid at Work (statutory) course complies with the current Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. Successful students receive certificates to show that they are qualified to be First Aiders in the workplace for the next three years.

The Blended First Aid at Work course is split in to two parts; a six hour e-Learning component and then a two day tutor-led classroom based component.  The e-Learning component can be stopped and re-started, so does not have to be sat in one six hour session, but must be completed before the tutor-led classroom day!
