First Aid at Work Course Assessment

First Aid is a highly practical subject which means you will be performing numerous practical activities during the 3 days (practicing techniques including CPR, the Recovery Position, etc).

Your tutor will assess your capability on each technique during these practical exercises. At the end of the course there is also a multiple-choice question exam paper to complete to demonstrate theoretical knowledge.

    “INSPIRING TEACHER, Mark I can’t thank you enough for the training… you are a great teacher and a credit to your vocation. I’ve never really been an academic, so it was out of my normal comfort zone. If my teachers were as inspiring as you, I would be a rocket scientist now”
