First Aid for Schools Training (Staff Inset Days)
The First Aid for Schools training is excellent if you would like your teachers and staff to have a certificate in first aid focusing on the main illness and injuries found in the school environment. All those that attend and complete the course will gain a certificate in attendance for ‘First Aid for Schools including CPR’. The course also shows those attending the use of auto injectors and epipens. First Aid for Schools is completed on a ratio of 20 teachers to 1 trainer allowing for greater numbers to be trained up and as said above gaining a certificate of attendance. If you are looking for a course that offers a qualification at the end we would advise you to have a look at either the AED (automated external defibrillator) with Basic Life Support course or the Anaphylaxis Training with Basic Life Support course. Both of these courses can be run separately over 4 hours or together over 6 hours. If you have any questions about what course you would like run at your school then please do contact us using our online form or call us on 01276 27915. Below is a course outline and contents of a basic First Aid for Schools training course.
