The Provide First Aid - Assessment Only course covers a comprehensive range of topics to enable participants to confidently manage emergency situations and provide a first aid response to a casualty. It covers the most common first aid injuries and illnesses. It is suitable for both people in workplaces and members of the public who want training in first aid. This course was previously known as Senior First Aid, Workplace Level 2, and Apply First Aid.


In this course, students complete a mandatory eLearning module and two and a quarter hours face-to-face practice and assessment, under individual supervision of an accredited assessor.


The link to the eLearning will be provided to you via email once your booking has been confirmed. If you do not receive this link, please contact us, as you will not be able to undertake the face-to-face assessment without completing the eLearning. You will need to bring evidence of completing the e-learning with you to the classroom.


Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities and a written test paper. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.
