Course Overview: First Aid at Work
Knowing how to act when you are at the scene of an accident is an invaluable skill to have. This online training course will teach learners how to follow the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines for basic to advanced life support training.
Throughout this training learners will be taught how to assess the situation they’re presented with and how to apply the recovery position technique. Once learners have completed this course they will have an understanding of what is meant by the AVPU scale (Alert, Voice, Pain, and Unresponsive), be able to follow guidelines for the use of Automated External Defibrillators and know the key processes to follow in an emergency and what to do for each one: Danger, Response, Shout, Airway, Breathing, and Circulation.
- Who should take this training course?
This training is suitable for anyone who needs to carry out risk assessments, up-date their first aid skills or just wants to learn a new skill.

The end of course test consists of 15 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve an 75% pass mark, and, if necessary, may attempt the test 3 times at no extra cost, having revisited the training material.
If learners do not immediately achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our Learner Support team.
You can download and print a digital first aid certificate immediately upon completion.
How it Works
This is a general guide to how the learning management system works.
This is an online course, all the training will be taken through your browser window. There will be no face-to-face sessions with instructors nor will you receive any training material through the post.
If you wish you may print out any page of the training material and may also print the notes you took during the training. You can also revisit the training material at any time, even after you have completed the course.
The material for this course has been broken down into several smaller lessons, each lesson dealing with a specific area of the overall subject.
The lesson consists of a series of pages in which an instructor will talk you through the lesson material at a pace that suits you. Pages may also include supporting pictures, graphs, animation or extra sounds to help with the learning where appropriate. Some lessons will include challenges/quizzes to help you keep in touch and interested in the material.
Lessons can be taken in any order and each lesson may be PAUSED and RESUMED at any stage. When all lessons in the course have been completed our system will realise and automatically record that you have successfully completed the course.
The course is self-paced so you decide how fast or slow the training goes. You can complete the course in stages revisiting the training at any time, however the training and test usually take between 2 to 3 hours to complete, depending on learning speed.
Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark to successfully complete the course. If necessary, the learner may attempt the test 3 times at no extra cost, having revisited the training material. If learners have not achieved the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting Learner Support.
