First Aid Courses

Would you know what to do if someone collapsed or stopped breathing?

The clinic is now registered to deliver:

• Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF)

• Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF)

Both courses are approved by the Health and Safety Executive and are valid for 3 years, although a yearly refresher course is always advised. We can cater the course to be sports specific if required.

All successful students will be issued with a certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their qualification.
