Whole Staff Inset – First Aid for Schools, inc paediatric

Course Overview
This 3 hour course is appropriate for all staff, in particular those who may need to deputise in the absence of the main first aider, and is also suitable for staff who may lead or accompany educational visits. The course is similar to the Appointed Person/Basic Skills Refresher course that HSE ‘strongly recommended’ as an annual refresher for those who have completed a statutory First Aid at Work qualification.
 
This course takes place on the school site, at a time to suit (eg 9.00 – 12.00).
