Our First Aid courses are specifically designed to meet the needs of either sporting or workplace based candidates. This half day Basic Life Support (BLS) course focuses on important first aid skills and applies them in a context relevant to the candidates. The course equips candidates with the knowledge and skills required to deal with a range of first aid scenarios but focuses on basic life support skills. By the end of the course the candidates will confidently be able to assess a scenario and select and apply appropriate first aid skills.
