Our 6 hour First Aid Course can be tailored to those that work in the care sector from the young to the elderly and meets the minimum requirements for First Aid in the Care Environment, equivalent to the Appointed Person First Aid Course.
This first aid course will meet the requirements of employers ‘duty of care’ to staff, clients and visitors in providing adequate first aid training. However it may be necessary for at least one member of staff to attend an Emergency First Aid at Work course.
If you are unsure of the appropriate level of first aid training for you and your staff please contact us. For further information about HSE regulations on First Aid in the Workplace download our First Aid at Work fact sheet.
This first aid course includes the essential skills required to assess & treat a casualty until further help arrives with particular attention to high risk injuries associated with the elderly or very young.
This course is certificated and valid for 3 years.

The Care Certificate was introduced in April 2015 to replace both the Common Induction Standards and the National Minimum Training Standards for all staff new to the healthcare and social care sectors. It came about as a result of the Francis Inquiry which looked into the serious failings at Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust. Following this report, Camilla Cavendish was asked to review the recruitment, training and support of care workers within both the healthcare and social care sectors. One of the recommendations of the Cavendish Review (July 2013) was to standardise the approach to induction training across the sectors with the development of the Care Certificate.
All staff new to care need to complete the Care Certificate within the first 12 weeks in their role. Staff who have previously completed the Common Induction Standards do not need to complete the Care Certificate, although some employers may wish to “top up” their learning and competency assessments in order to award the Care Certificate.
Employers have 6 months from the 1st April launch date to ensure that all of their training and induction procedures are in line with the new standards.
Although the Care Certificate is designed for new staff, it also offers opportunities for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge.
