These Highfields 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.
Courses are delivered by our experienced tutors, who are practical and hands-on in their approach. Training will take pace in LSBU Active's Academy of Sport, which has recently undergone £1 million of investment.
Highfields is one of the UK's leading awarding bodies in compliance qualifications, so these courses are ideal if you work in a fitness or health related industry.
