Prices vary depending on which type of training courses are required
The best way to assess training course requirements for yourself or your staff is to do an online first aid awareness course that outlines the law and the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981.
First aid at work (FAW) certificates, Emergency first aid at work (EFAW) certificates and paediatric first aid courses are all valid for 3 years. Some training providers offer refresher training, but most insist the entire course is done again.
A good first aid training course won’t require any prior knowledge of first aid or emergency response. Courses are usually designed for complete beginners and you won’t be expected to have any prior knowledge
You are taught a mixture of both practical and theory. Usually how to examine a casualty, use a defibrillator, basic life support and control bleeding and trauma. The aim is to preserve life long enough for medically trained individuals to take over. Other first aid skills are usually taught such as treating burns and scalds as well as assisting a choking individual.
