On a standard First Aid Course, we cover most eventualities that you may be faced with in the real world. Courses that last less than a day, however, do not cover seizures and epilepsy.

When you’re learning to drive a car you need to have a grasp on the theoretical knowledge in order to gain a solid understanding. You also need some practice in order to gain more confidence -it is the same as First Aid Training.

Theory eLearning can never replace the practical elements of our first aid courses, or the ability to ask questions and share stories with our first aid instructors. But, if we can raise awareness and teach you some basics (or refresh your skills) from the comfort of your own home or office, then that’s great!
