Essential Information

Skills on the course are examined continuously by the trainer. Multiple-choice questions set by the national body First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) test theoretical knowledge. There will be an examination at the end of the course. Please bring a mobile device or laptop to access the final examination.

Participants should have good English language skills to pass this exam. You should be physically able to take part in these sessions and dress appropriately.
Attendance for the entire duration of the course is mandatory. Participants who arrive late may not be allowed admission to this course – this decision is at the tutor’s discretion.
It is the responsibility of individuals to ensure that they re-qualify before their Certificates expire.
