About The Course

Level 3 (18 hrs)
FAIB Approved – certificate number 150

This is an in-depth course, aimed at providing employees with the skills, knowledge and confidence to deal effectively with a wide range of possible First Aid situations at work.

The course structure includes plenty of practical and practice to build confidence and competence. There are question and answer sessions, and space to revise areas that candidates may be unsure of. The specification for this course was revised by the HSE in 2009. Employers are currently advised to hold refresher sessions yearly to prevent skill degradation.

All courses can be delivered either on-site at your premises, or at one of our specialist training centres.
