First Aid Appointed Person

Course Details

This First Aid appointed person course looks at the requirements to provide knowledge to low risk environments. This course exceeds the HSE requirement for an Appointed Person as it includes basic life support.  It examines the requirements to take charge of an incident knowing what to do and how to summon the correct help. It does not qualify them to be classed as a First Aider. Please see our Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course.
