First Aid Information

The First Aid Information course is designed to provide learners with basic first aid skills to enable them to cope with a casualty until more qualified personnel are available. The aim is to make learners more confident in dealing with everyday first aid situations that arise without warning. First aid is a basic life skill that we all need. It is better to know first aid and not need it, than to need it and not know it.

Course Methodology & Assessment

The course will be presented in a modular format, which includes problem-based learning and practical skills. Assessments of the learners are carried out through the tutor’s observations of their engagement on the course and their participation in the practical skills sessions.
