First Aid Training
All organisations are required by law to ensure that they have adequate and appropriate first-aid cover at all times. Employers must ensure that a First Aid risk assessment has been carried out taking into consideration the size, shift patterns and hazards of their organisation. East of England Training deliver the following First Aid qualifications, which can be either accredited through our Awarding Organisation, Qualifications Network UK or certified by us.
All courses can either be delivered at your place of business or a venue of your choosing for groups of up to 12 delegates. The unaccredited course is exactly the same sylabus as the accredited qualification, and still meets the requirements of the Health & Safety Executive, however it does not require a registration fee for a regulated certificate.
