Emergency First Aid at Work
This course is suitable for people who might need to provide first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work. It is ideal for organisations whose first aid needs assessment has identified a requirement for someone to hold a current emergency first aid at work qualification.

From the 1st April 2021 this qualification will be required prior to doing a Level 2 SIA Door Supervisor Course.

- unresponsive and not breathing, including how to use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)

- bleeding heavily
- suffering from shock
The course also includes information on:
- assessing a casualty
