Emergency Care & First Aid Training

In the event of an accident or emergency, making the right choices at the right time can be the difference between life and death. As such, emergency care and first aid training is a critical part of any healthcare worker’s preparation for their role. Under HSE recommendations, every employer should have at least one Emergency First Aider. This individual is responsible for the provision of first aid in emergency situations, or following an accident. However, health workers are all required to understand the basics of emergency care, life support, and CPR, under standards 12 and 13 of the Care Certificate.
Some of the key procedures covered by emergency care and first aid training for the NHS include handling cases of shock, minor injuries, external bleeding and choking. These elearning materials also include defibrillator training, and how to assess and respond appropriately to an emergency situation.
Search our database of emergency care and first aid online training and face-to-face courses, or use our preset filters to explore other delivery methods. Many of these courses can be tailored to your organisation’s needs, and culminate in a completion certificate so learners can retain a record of their training.
