Programme Outline

Our Level 3 First Aid at Work course will help to improve your knowledge and understanding of first aid requirements of the workplace. During this 3-day training course, you will learn about cross infection, basic safety equipment use, incident management and how to report emergencies in line with your business regulations.


You will also be shown how to appropriately treat someone who is bleeding, choking or suffering from shock. Our experienced trainers will explain the best way to deal with life threatening conditions such as seizures, unconsciousness or a non-breathing casualty.

In addition, you will be shown how to handle a situation where the casualty is having a heart attack, anaphylaxis, asthma and cardiac arrest. All students will be assessed by the expert trainers throughout the duration of the course and they will also be given a theoretical and practical knowledge of the subject.

  • Explain how they should report emergencies in line with their employer’s safety regulations
