Details of First Aid Courses

First Aid at Work  (RQF)*

The 3-Day First Aid at Work and the 1-Day Emergency First Aid at Work courses both meet the HSE legislation requirements for First Aid in the Workplace. 

We can meet the needs of every employment sector at any level.

Outdoor First Aid & 

Forest Schools First Aid

This 16 Hour, Level 6 (SCQF)* qualification is delivered over two days.  It is designed to meet the needs of those working in remote outdoor locations where help is likely to be delayed.  It is the Gold Standard for leaders in Outdoor Education.

All our courses are active, practical and participative.

Paediatric First Aid and Emergency Paediatric First Aid

These two courses at Level 3 (RQF)* are delivered over One and Two Days and meet OFSTED requirements for all schools and nurseries etc. caring for EYFS children.

* See below for explanation of these abbreviations.

First Aid for Schools

A bespoke 6 Hour course designed to meet the special needs of schools and covering all of the topics and skills for the care of both adults and children including children’s illnesses and head injury.

Hands-on AED defibrillation training is included in every course.

On-line First Aid Training

Many internet based companies are now offering ‘online First Aid courses’ which you may be tempted to access because they appear to be cheap and economical.  We do not offer online training, nor do we permit any part of our courses to be completed online.   Our prime concern is to offer the highest quality of teaching and assessment to all our candidates, and to ensure that on completion and subsequent certification they are competent and confident to provide effective lifesaving First Aid to an individual in need.

We do not believe it is possible for you to effectively learn the essential practical skills involved in First Aid by simply watching a video or reading a workbook, and we do not believe you can ever be assessed as competent in the essential skills through online training.

On all of our courses you will be engaged in hands-on, practical sessions at every opportunity throughout the course, demonstrating your skills and your understanding. We believe this is the only effective way of learning and being properly assessed.

If you ever needed lifesaving First Aid would you want to be sure the person helping you had actually demonstrated that they are competent, or just seen it on a video?

* What do SCQF and RQF stand for?

The RQF is the Regulated Qualifications Framework, a system by which all vocational courses are accredited and validated for quality, and which lays down the regulations which providers must meet to deliver courses that are so validated.  It is a system that means providers are subject to both internal and external quality assurance inspections by OFQUAL appointed Awarding Bodies.  (In our case that Awarding Body is ITC First Ltd).  The RQF also places qualifications on a specified Level according to the complexity of the topic, length of the course and the responsibilities it places on the holder. Further details at

The SCQF is the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework, which is the equivalent in Scotland. 

SQA Accreditation is appointed by the Scottish Government to regulate qualifications listed on the SCQF. Further details at

The qualifications are fully recognised across all of the national boundaries of the UK and in every country of the UK.

NOTE: All our courses are practical and active, we normally expect all candidates to be able to bend, kneel, lie and roll another person on floor mats, and to perform CPR on a manikin.  We advise all candidates to dress so that they will feel comfortable to do so.
