Our First Aid in an Education and Care Setting training delivery options are outlined below:
Full Day Theory/Practical – Students complete pre-course learning and attend a full day course (up to *7 hours) with their trainer. This course is ideal for those with limited experience or those who prefer to spend more time in the classroom refreshing their knowledge and practicing the skills involved in first aid, including practical and theory assessments.
Express Course – Face to Face Practical– Students complete pre-course learning and attend a shorter course of up to *2 hours with their trainer. This course is ideal for those with experience, having completed first aid training previously or for those working in the medical field. Students attending an express course will complete the practical assessments only as it is expected they have enough experience and the completion of the pre-course learning assisted with refreshing their knowledge to prepare for the assessment. One assessment will include the completion of an incident report form following a practical scenario. All theory assessments are completed prior to attending the assessment.
Express Course – Zoom Practical – This course is the same as the above Express Course, however, is conducted via zoom instead of face to face. Group sizes are capped, and the practical duration is longer than face to face to ensure all assessment requirements are met.
*Duration depends on group size.
The online pre-course learning consists of presentations, and multiple-choice questions aimed to prepare students for further training and or assessment. The pre-course learning can also be completed by a hard copy workbook, or in-class with the trainer if organised before-hand.
95% of students and instructors prefer the online method as it’s convenient and cost efficient.
