Tuesday 1st September to Thursday 3rd September 2020 10am – 5pm (3 days)
Join us for our certified 3 day intensive First Aid at Work programme at our fully equipped training centre in Caerphilly. Cost £195 + VAT. Our location is 5 minutes walk from Caerphilly train station and our smart modern training facilities include an on-site cafe for breaks and lunch.
This course runs over 18 hours spread over 3 days and is designed to ensure you leave with the confidence to act quickly and efficiently in an emergency. The length of this course means we can spread out the theory so that learning is more effective. We also have ample practice time over the 3 days for skill mastery.
Primary Care Skills
We will teach you how to deal with life threatening conditions learning these skills: Scene Safety Assessment, Primary Assessment, Barrier Use, CPR Rescue Breathing, CPR Chest compression’s, AED use, Choking, Dealing with Serious Bleeding, Spinal Injuries and Shock Management.
The use of an AED device is now compulsory within the recommendation of HSE EFAW first aid. CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart of a sudden cardiac arrest victim. An AED can deliver a shock automatically to the heart when an abnormal heart rhythm is detected. Using the latest AED trainers with both visual and audio cues the student will simulate this emergency and learn how to confidently deal with a sudden cardiac arrest.
In addition, as part of the FAW (HSE recommended) syllabus we teach the responsibilities of the appointed person such as assessment of needs in the workplace, First Aid Kits, Record Keeping (accident book) and duties of the first aider.
Secondary CARE skills
The Secondary care section of our training course deals with first aid skills such as injury assessment, illness assessment, bandaging and splinting.
The skills you learn throughout the day will be assessed for competency leading to certification at the end of the course which is valid for 3 years.
