Now Includes comprehensive de-fib (AED – Automated External Defibrillator) training.

Description

A training course which requires delivery by specially qualified trainers, all staff who work in a care setting need to have received training in First Aid covering basic principles and responses.

The Care-FULLYTRAINED First Aid Training Course has been designed to deliver on a range of medical and first aid conditions and situations. Whilst intrinsically aimed at the health & social care setting, the material will apply invariably to most given settings, where the candidate is confronted with a first aid situation.

This course exceeds the requirement for basic first aid awareness, which care staff must have, and is enjoyable as well as versatile to suit the specific needs of both individuals and care providers. This will leave the candidate equipped and confident in handling most emergency first aid situations that they may face, whether at work or in their personal life.
