Emergency First Aid

Course Overview

Our one day Emergency First Aid course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to treat a person who is ill or injured.  The course covers all the common medical emergencies as well as the four life threatening emergencies; Cardiac Arrest, Heart Attack, Stroke and Choking.


PHECC (Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council) Cardiac First Responder training is incorporated into the programme and so participants will receive two certificates: An Emergency First Aid Certificate and a PHECC Cardiac First Responder Certificate.

The course is suitable for anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of first aid and feel confident to step forward and help someone in need.

We run regular public courses or alternatively, this course can be delivered onsite for groups.
