First Aid for Students
This is a great course, one of our most popular courses, where Ascent First Aid have travelled up and down the UK to deliver First Aid for Students. Our trainers have delivered this course for Duke of Edinburgh groups looking to make their bronze, silver and gold expeditions that extra bit safer; we’ve spent days within schools training up classrooms and year groups at a time to give them a great knowledge of first aid before they leave for senior school or 6th form; and this course has also been tailored to the needs of the group such as D of E but also A level sports science and PE. Ascent First Aid can run this course around the needs of the school but most importantly, around the needs of the student. Successful courses from year groups 6 to 6th form/college and groups of 10 to groups of 80.
At Ascent First Aid, we are approved by the awarding organisation ITC First Aid Ltd and you can find us registered with them by researching us here.
