First Aid Trainer Courses in Colchester Essex and Nationwide onsite.

If you would like to deliver first aid at work courses and already hold a recognised teaching qualification, this first aid at work instructor training course is designed for you.

The course will help you to increase your first aid knowledge and confidence by focusing on first aid as a subject, your friendly and professional tutors will teach you how to deliver and demonstrate first aid subjects in an effective and engaging way, that will ensure that the students you teach, will leave your courses ready to deal with any emergency that may arise.

The course is delivered over 5 days, the first day is completed online, at a time convenient for you. This covers the theory for the Level 3 Award in First aid at Work and provides six hours of video based training, where many of the skills are demonstrated, you complete quizzes on the subjects that you have covered. This can be completed in one sitting or if you prefer you stop and start the training to fit in with your other commitments. You can review the course content and videos as many times as you like and will have access to the course for up to eight months, even after you have passed the course.

The online course must be completed before you attend the classroom session.

When you arrive at the classroom you will be able to practice the skills you have learned online, the tutor will complete the rest of the modules for the first aid at work course and will teach you how to demonstrate the skills that you will be teaching your students. Towards the end of the training, you will prepare a session plan and deliver a presentation based on a first aid subject and partake in other assessing and teaching sessions.

To ensure that you can deliver a range of courses, you will also gain Paediatric First Aid Instructor and AED Instructor, AED use is now part of the Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work curriculum and is now becoming more popular as a stand-alone course due to the higher number of AEDs that are now used in a number of businesses. The Paediatric and AED modules are covered in your online training and will also be part of your classroom training.

This training course includes all of the following:
  • First Aid Instructor
  • Paediatric First Aid Instructor
  • AED Instructor
  • Level 3 First Aid at Work Qualification
