Course description

The First Aid at Work course, covered over 3 days, will qualify you as a First Aider and will enable you to deal with an accident or injury in the workplace. It will qualify you to diagnose a variety of possible illnesses and injuries and will enable you to assess the need to seek further medical attention.

At the end of the course there is a written exam and trainees must demonstrate the skills and knowledge learnt during the course, when there will be some hands on floor work. Trainees will receive a certificate at the end of the course and the qualification lasts for three years.

Additional Information

Please note - Freedom Leisure guidance:

We are delighted that we can return to delivering First Aid Courses, but we must make sure that you are all safe to do so. Therefore, we ask that you read and follow the guidance below at all times for the duration of this course

  • Adhere to the information provided by the venue
  • Wash your hands regularly or use hand sanitiser.
  • Bring a face covering to be worn around the building and during practical sessions.
  • Please wash or sanitise your hands before and after every theory/practical session
  • If you use any shared equipment such manikins, auto injector pens etc, please clean them before and after use.
  • Please respect the tutor, we are governed by HSE. They will not ask you to do anything that they do not need to see. Please note, rescue breaths into a manikin do need to be seen. There are clear cleaning regimes, you will each be given a face mask and we dispose of the ‘lungs’ within the manikin after each training session.
  • If you have any concerns about the safety of yourself or colleagues, please report this to your line manager immediately.
  • A full copy of our risk assessment is available if required.

We believe that if we all follow these simple measures we will provide a safe course environment for customers and trainers. However, if you think there is more that we can do, please speak to your tutor.
We have adapted our delivery of first aid in line with HSE guidelines. As with all first aid, there is an element of interaction with others. However; we have compiled risk assessments based on this and have minimised the risk as much as possible and have done what we can to safeguard our course attendees and tutors throughout each course.


We have completed a Covid-19 risk assessment on the Training Centre Rooms and mitigating actions are in place. If you are at a high risk of Covid-19 please complete an Individual Covid-19 Risk Assessment with your manager and send to at least one week before the course date.

Please bring an extra layer of clothing as training centre windows may be opened for ventilation

Please note, parking around St Mary’s House is limited.
