Certification is dependent on successful continuous assessment of the student, there is no final exam. Those students who complete the course and are deemed to have reached the required standard are issued with a certificate that is valid for three years*.

*Under the current guidelines it is strongly recommended that first aid trained staff attend a half-day update every twelve months.


The group cost for an in-house course  for up to 12 candidates is from £350 when run at your venue.  This includes certification and a manual for each student. There are no additional costs.
