I don't have a teaching qualification, will I need one? - Yes everyone who wants to teach first aid at work must have an appropriate teaching qualification, the Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the minimum requirement
What qualifications do I need to become a first aid instructor? - All first aid instructors should have a recognised teaching and assessing qualification such as the Award in Education and Training and a full 3 day First Aid at Work Certificate or the equivelant, unless they are a paramedic or nurse with current registration. They should also have a thorough knowledge of the courses they are planning to teach.
Do First Aid Instructors need to renew their First Aid Qualification? - Yes if you are not a registered nurse or doctor you will need to make sure that you keep your first aid qualification or first responder qualification up to date, for first aid this would mean renewing it every 3 years.
I have FREC 3 will I need a first aid at work qualification to teach first aid? - No but you will need a suitable teaching/assessing qualification if you don't have one already.
Is there any help for first aid trainers to find work? - ProTrainings have a lot of instructors who need help to deliver their courses, you would need to register with them but they offer a lot of support, advice and opportunities for freelance instructors.
I am a nurse and already hold a teaching qualification should I complete a first aid instructor course? - It is always a good idea to learn as much as possible about the subjects you are going to teach and the rules and regulations about first aid training.
