Helping someone who is sick or injured is an essential part of the humanity of all of us. First aid, as the term implies, is the treatment given before professional medical support becomes available. As a trained first aider you can make the difference between life and death.
As well as preserving life, alleviating suffering, preventing further illness/injury and promoting recovery, the workplace first aider must be aware of legislation designed to ensure their employer provides adequate duty of care not only for its own personnel but also for visitors and the general public (see also Legal ).

Delegates completing a course and achieving the qualification receive a course booklet and a regulated certificate.
Non-accredited courses are also available for those not requiring accreditation by a regulatory body. Course fees are reduced to reflect the costs of certification. Delegates receive a training booklet and a non-accredited (Viking) certificate.

Closed (or in-house) courses are for larger organisations and public bodies, and usually take place on-site/at the workplace. They are tailored to the organisation’s individual first aid training needs, and require at least 6 delegates.
Most of our qualifications are valid for three years, after which refresher training or requalification is required. Each course typically has no more than 12 delegates.
