This emergency first aid training course enables you to act as an appointed person within your organisation responsible for frontline first aid. You are able to take charge of the first aid arrangements, including looking after the equipment and facilities and calling the Emergency Medical Services when required, along with learning basic life sustaining techniques.
Currently this course is regulated by the HSE, however in October 2013 this regulation changes allowing professional training providers and approved First Aid Trainers to deliver emergency first aid training without having to provide an HSE certificate.
