Emergency First Aid at Work
This 6-hour course is the entry level for occupational First Aid where an organisation’s risk assessment requires emergency First Aiders. It gives participants the skills and knowledge to provide the initial treatment to any adult casualties in their workplace in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
The course mixes theoretical and practical learning and assessment, and the accredited certificate lasts for three years. All courses can be tailored to the audience e.g. INSET for teachers or EFAW for personal trainers working outside.
It also forms day 1 of the 3-day First Aid at Work qualification, so we can add 2 extra days if your organisation’s risk assessment requires the higher level.
- Definition and principles of First Aid
- Incident management
- Unconscious casualties and the safe airway position
- Bleeding and shock
- CPR and defibrillator awareness
- Minor injuries
- Responsibilities and reporting
£70 per person including a manual and accredited certificate valid for 3 years (min. 6 and max. 12 participants). Private group rates on request.
We can run the course at any suitably sized venue or can source a venue for you at your cost, if required.

Thank you so much Louise, the girls LOVED it! They came home brimming with advice for us and wanting to practice the recovery position on everyone. Hopefully they won’t ever need to use their new knowledge but I’m so glad they have it! And they hugely enjoyed learning it. – Eliza
Louise was very energetic and engaging and the session was informative, giving key information without being overwhelming. All the explanations were very clear and it was brilliantly practical – this type of teaching sticks! – Sam
Louise makes learning first aid easy and she gives you confidence in giving it a go. The course has a great format and lots of humour makes it very memorable. – Lou
Louise was brilliant with our group of 6 year olds. She set just the right pace & covered so much. The children came away proud of what they had learnt and confident to try out their new skills. A really worthwhile 1.5 hours. Thank you so much! – Catherine
The course was excellent and this is an integral life skill to take away and not JUST a certificate you "should have" or "need to get to qualify". Louise delivers all the information in a clear and fun way which means staying engaged throughout the day. – Will
Louise runs an amazing first aid course. I came away feeling confident that I am now able to help in any situation if it was to arise. – Jasmine
