Our First Aid at Work is regulated First Aid at Work qualification, which is suitable for individuals who intend to act as a workplace First Aider.
Our complete course prepares delegates with the vital skills required to diagnose and treat injuries or illness, with an importance in dealing with life threatening situations until professional help arrives. With this in mind Response First would like to ensure that delegates leave with the self-confidence and vital life saving skills necessary to deal a range of situations that could arise in the workplace.
What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and be rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality First Aid training.
The following range of subjects are covered:-
- Assessing, diagnosing & incident management
- First aiders responsibilities

- Adult CPR training

Requirement: No previous certification is required.
Delegates will be frequently assessed throughout the duration of the course, with successful candidates receiving a Level 3 First Aid at Work certificate.
This is valid for a period of 3 years and can be renewed by attending a 2 day Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification course.
Changes in the HSE guidelines now states that employers “should ensure” that all qualified first aiders “remain competent to perform their role”. In order for employers to meet this requirement, it is recommended that first aiders attend annual refresher training.
