This course is suitable for people and businesses who wish to learn new first aid skills or refresh their existing first aid skills. No previous qualifications are needed to take this course as all the basic first aid techniques are covered in the training.

This course is best suited to low-hazard workplaces (such as offices, shops and restaurants) where a qualified first aider is not required according to the first aid needs assessment. It's considered best practice for all employees to be provided with first aid knowledge, particularly those who are in charge of first aid arrangements, and this course satisfies that requirement.
