Although no longer a statutory requirement for complementary therapists to hold a qualification in first aid it is highly recommended in the VTCT qualifications criteria. This one day First Aid at Work course covers all the necessary criteria to obtain a recognised first aid qualification and is in line with the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
The course is accredited by the Association of First Aiders, and will be delivered by Paramedical First Aid Training. On completion of the course, you will receive a certificate from Paramedical First Aid Training, that is valid for three years .
On completion of the course you will be able to:
