Each course meets the requirements outlined in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The HSE requires a set amount of contact hours that differs for each course. Learners must attend all sessions to be eligible for assessment, which is done by continuous observation and questioning during the course.
On successful completion of each first aid course, you will receive a certificate which is valid for three years.
The number and type of first aiders is determined by the risks in your business. To help, the HSE publish a useful guide in thier First at Work INDG214 Guide and Table 2 from this guide is below to help.
