Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will be delivered on-campus with reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

This course aims to train individuals to the standard required by the Health & Safety Executive for the purpose of the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The certificate awarded will be valid for three years, after which candidates may renew their qualification by undertaking the two day First Aid at Work Refresher course.
