These YMCA accredited first aid courses are designed to give you the skills, knowledge and competence required to administer emergency first aid in the workplace. This includes being able to assess, diagnose and treat casualties before the arrival of medical staff in the event of an emergency.

First aid

Courses are delivered by our experienced tutors, who are practical and hands-on in their approach. Training will take pace in our Academy of Sport, which has recently undergone £1 million of investment.

YMCA is one of the UK's leading awarding bodies in fitness, health and well-being, so these courses are ideal if you work in a fitness or health related industry.

First Aid training should be risk-specific so please contact us if you would like to discuss a training package based on your specific requirements.

  • administer first aid to a casualty who:
    • is unconscious (including seizures)
    • requires cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
