There are some training sessions that will give you essential skills in first aid training in just a few hours. One of these is the appointed person update. If you have appointed persons within your organisation who hold a First Aid Certificate this is an excellent training course to consider. It is important to make sure that your first aiders are up to speed on how to cope in an emergency and in just four hours they can have their skills renewed and reinforced with up to date training methods.
Rather than renewing the First Aid Certificate this course is designed to simply give an update on the latest procedures. Those who attend will not have their First Aid Certificate renewed, it will still be necessary to go on the renewal training once the certificate expires.
What Do You Learn on the Four Hour First Aid Course?
During the face to face training session all of the candidates will be taught a number of skills. These include how to assess the situation if an emergency situation occurs. They will go over how the deal with an unconscious person correctly using the approved procedures as well as providing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Other topics include:
- First aid kits
- Cross infection
- Blood loss
By attending the course your employees will receive a skills session voucher for their records and to show they have attended the training. Once the First Aid Certificate is due to expire you will need to book them on the refresher course as usual. Â You may also wish to consider enrolling your first aiders on other courses such as the:
- HSE Emergency First Aid at Work for Appointed Persons
- First Aid at Work – HSE
- The First Aid at Work Refresher
- Automated External Defibrillator
- Child Carer First Aid Training
By ensuring your appointed persons are up to date with their training you can be sure that the first aid facilities are managed by competent people. If you are not sure whether you need an appointed person conduct a first aid risk assessment. To book places on any of our first aid courses call us on: 0844 576 6750
