Overview of Support offered

This qualification is designed for those learners wishing to gain a nationally recognised qualification in first aid and become emergency first aiders in their workplace. This qualification meets the requirements for training emergency first-aiders in those organisations that have identified a need for staff to be trained to this level within their first-aid needs assessment. The topics within this qualification are regarded by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) as being important in maintaining good practice in the safe, prompt and effective treatment of injuries and ill health in the workplace.
The qualification provides learners with the knowledge, understanding and skills in emergency first aid. This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who work in low hazard environments (for example an office or shop) or where Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines indicate staff should hold a certificate in emergency first aid at work. It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.
SainTs Training has been delivering numerous course to its mentees for many years and with this latest addition to our deliverables, we hope this continue to grow.
