Who should attend
Nominated staff on all College campuses who may need to contain a situation before referring to the Health Centre or Accident and Emergency as appropriate.
This qualification lasts for 3 years after which you should attend this course again to re-qualify. During this 3 year period, it is highly recommended that you attend the course First Aid Refresher + AED to practice your skills at least 18 months before your qualification expires. Please note that we do not offer First Aid at Work Qualification at hospital campuses.
All participants must complete the pre-requisite e-learning prior to attendance. There will be an assessment of contents on Day 1 and participants will not receive the full certificate until they have successfully completed the e-learning module and passed the test. Log-in details will be sent from ‘Imperial Training’ as part of the Joining Instructions, 28 days prior to the course.
Attendance throughout the entire duration of the course is mandatory. At the tutor's discretion, participants who arrive late may not be allowed admission to this course.
This course is a Level 3 qualification. Skills on the course are examined continuously by the trainer. Theoretical knowledge is tested by multiple choice set by the national body. Staff attending should have good English language skills in order to pass this exam. There will be competence-based assessment throughout and an examination at the end of the course. Participants should be physically able to take part in these sessions and dress appropriately.
