British Red Cross - first aid training


Why learn first aid?

Red Cross Training first aid course

Learning first aid can help you feel more prepared and able to cope in an emergency situation. For businesses, it can also help manage risks and reduce time lost due to illness or injury.

You never know when you might need first aid to help a colleague, friend, family member, or even someone you don't know – we think everyone should have the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has revised its first aid at work syllabuses; from 31 December 2016, all first aiders must be trained in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

That's why we've introduced practical AED training as part of our one, two, and three day first aid at work courses – ahead of the December deadline.
