First Aid and Mental Health Courses FAQs
What is a first aid course?
Our first aid courses equip employees with the skills needed to safely administer first aid in the event of an emergency. By the end of the course, the First Aid Responders will have the knowledge, practical skills, and confidence to give effective life support, diagnose and treat injuries or illness, and maintain care of a patient until the arrival of emergency services.
Our mental health courses aim to support organisations and their staff in caring for their mental health. The vital importance of mental health care is increasingly recognised, especially during tumultuous global events, and so it is essential that workplaces are prepared for mental health crises just as they would be for physical health problems.
Why do a first aid course?
In the event of a medical emergency, the response of those around the ill person can make the difference between life and death, or a full recovery versus serious ongoing health conditions. So administering good first aid is a key skill that all employees should learn.
