Basic Life Support Training

This half day course provides students with basic training in first aid. The course is a cost-effective way of training a group of delegates, without taking up too much of their work time. The course is ideal as supplementary training in the workplace for people who may require some first aid training, but do not act as fully qualified first aiders.

The course does not replace the need for qualified first aiders in the workplace.

By the end of the course students will have a basic understanding of the following:

  • Principles of emergency first aid.
  • Basic life support.
  • Recognition and control of bleeding.
  • Choking and unconsciousness.
  • Treatment of burns and scalds.

The content of this course can also be tailored to specific requirements in your workplace e.g. nurses, high risk environments, or to address specific needs.

The Basic Life Support (Half Day) Course Costs £40 per student + VAT.
Course fee includes:
  • Professional instruction.
  • All required equipment to carry out the course.
  • Full colour manual.
  • Students will receive an attendance certificate valid for 1 year.

Course Enquiry

Courses are available at our modern training facility or at your own premises.

Since the 1st October 2009 the first aid regulations have changed and the HSE have introduced a new level of first aider in the workplace - the emergency first aider (1 day course) and the full First Aid at Work course is now run over 3 days.

You may need to reassess your company's first aid needs and the number of first aiders in your workplace.

There should be a first aider available to take control of all first aid arrangements at all times when people are working.
