First Aid Training
First Aid Training
First Aid training is a mandatory requirement for all security and protection personnel in order to fulfil the requirements of, and to maintain their operational licenses.
At the most basic level the knowledge and confidence to provide immediate care whilst awaiting more experienced assistance is fundamental in operational environments as well as desirable in civilian life.
Extended training with initial ‘Place of Work’ courses can lead on to higher skillsets for Tactical Combat Casualty Care within the ‘Golden Hour’ to treat a moderate injury or potentially to maintain survivability in the severely injured casualty.
1. First Aid Essentials
Familiarity with and basic first aid competency and capability is necessary for certification for any protection or security operative as a mandatory component of the process of licensing.
This level 2 course which is nationally recognised and regulated to allow operatives to provide basic first aid in emergency situations takes place over one day. Certification is valid for three years.
Topics include the assessment of a responsive or unresponsive casualty, the management of immediately life-threatening emergencies including basic Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and AED defibrillation, seizures, choking, bleeding, shock as well as minor injuries and documentation.
This course provides practical experience in the delivery of basic first aid to support life whilst awaiting the arrival of a professional emergency responder.
2. First Aid at Work
This more advanced Level 3 course includes and extends the skills and confidence obtained in the basic course and is directed at persons who may encounter and need to deliver first aid in response to a wider variety of accidents, injuries and illnesses or medical conditions.
The course duration is two days and requires a minimum of 18 hours training as required by the HSE UK and is delivered by experienced and highly qualified instructors who also hold teaching qualifications for adult learning.
Learners are assessed throughout the course for comprehension, skill development and confidence building in practical and hands-on training sessions.
Additional skill topics include emergencies such including, though not limited to poisoning, head injuries, temperature related illnesses, burns, bony or spinal injuries, severe bleeding, as well as cardiac conditions and stroke, asthma and diabetes.
In order to support our learners within the security industry further topics may consider basic ‘Battlefield Emergency Life Support’ within the ‘Golden Hour’ .
