How the Course Is Delivered?

This statutory course is delivered as blended learning, what this means is that you do not have to be in the classroom physically for the first two days of the course, you can learn from the comfort of your home or from your office, and then on the last day of the course you will then attend the classroom for the final part of your training and one day face-to-face contact still embracing COVID-19 Mitigation.  This course is widely available at all our training centres, under the guidance of our specialist First Aid at Work trainers. Using the latest training technique, it maximises learner recall and confidence and meets HSE Regulations.
