From October 1st 2013, it is no longer a requirement for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to approve first aid training and qualifications. Businesses now have more flexibility to manage their provision of first aid in the workplace.
First aid providers are required to be prepared at any time to demonstrate how they maintain standards and satisfy HSE criteria. It is therefore down to the individual to identify and select competent training providers, and if required produce evidence to support this process.
Due to this change in legislation, we are now able to offer two types of courses:
First aid qualifications guided by qualification regulators, i.e. Office of Qualifications and Examinations (OFQUAL). Certified by our OFQUAL regulated awarding bodies, The Association of First Aiders (AFOA), and Qualsafe Awards.
Courses independent of any regulated scheme, maintaining high standards and identical content, fulfilling all HSE requirements. Certificated by Paramedical First Aid Training Ltd.
Due to self certification on unregulated courses, we are able to offer these at reduced rates.
Here at Paramedical first aid training we not only offer fully regulated qualifications, but also bespoke courses to suit your individual first aid requirements. These courses can be of any duration with a minimum of 1 hour teaching time. Website price quoted based on a 1 hour course.
This course is designed for children between the ages of 10 to 18, teaching them the basics of First Aid. It provides learners with skills and knowledge to deal with first aid situations in low risk environments.
