The flagship St John Ambulance first aid course covers a comprehensive range of topics to enable participants to confidently manage emergency situations and provide a first aid response to a casualty. It covers the most common first aid injuries and illnesses. It is suitable for both people in workplaces and members of the public who want training in first aid.
This course was previously known as Senior First Aid, Workplace Level 2, and Apply First Aid.
This two day course is best suited to people who are new to first aid or where English is a second language.
Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities and a written test paper. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.
