Who is this course for?

This training is for those people employed by Brighton and Hove City Council or Brighton and Hove Schools who have a specific responsibility at work, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations.

If however, you are taking a lead in first aid in your workplace, the three day First Aid at Work course may be more appropriate for you.

Please note: there are specific courses for staff who that work in Adult Social Care or Children Services.


What is the purpose of this course?


The course aims to enable delegates to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed, to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of first aider in the workplace. 


How are delegates assessed?

There are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course and these will be observed by the trainer. During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. There is also a theory assessment/multiple choice paper at the end of the course to assess competence and gain certification. 

The delegate will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation. If the delegate is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example, because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualification.  In exceptional circumstances, delegates who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.
 
 
Re-certification

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years and will be issued to those who have met the required standard. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full day Emergency First Aid at Work course.
