Our 3 day First Aid at Work course is broken down into one day eLearning followed by 2 days of face-to-face training sessions.
An eLearning code will be emailed to you and the module must be completed prior to the practical day. Learners can access the module as many times as required via a computer/laptop/tablet and phone. Online training appeals to all learners through quizzes, audio and video. Learners have the flexibility to complete the course at their own pace.
The face-to-face sessions will be delivered by one of our professional and highly engaging trainers who will ensure you have fun while you learn. We take great pride in the courses we have created which are packed with games, quizzes, and plenty of hands-on practical elements which creates the perfect learning environment.
Course will run 9am – 3.30pm both days which includes a short morning break/lunch break. It is advised you bring your own lunch as there may not be food options close to the facility.
What you will learn

Learners are assessed throughout the eLearning. Self-checks are performed after each section of the course and an end of course multiple-choice assessment.
During the face-to-face training, your ability is assessed throughout the day using a range of quizzes, questioning, games and scenarios.
