[  FULL DAY  ]

This Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work course has been specifically designed to help businesses and individuals learn basic first aid skills so that they have the confidence to act in a potentially life-threatening situation. The course uses high quality videos and written guidance to help you recognise emergency situations, treat minor conditions and reactions, and ensure appropriate action is taken at the time of an incident.
