What is Blended Learning?blended learning logo 2 alt

Blended learning is accepted by the HSE as an effective way of learning First Aid. The course is a combination of practical skills training in the classroom with one of our expert trainers, and online learning to acquire the underpinning knowledge required to be a competent person.

You can log in and access the online part of your training anytime and in any place. Our unique program is compatible with any device. You will also have access to over 300 learning resources. 

It saves your organisation time and the cost of releasing staff for the additional day of training, and is proving a very popular way to learn in these busy times.






Who should attend this course?


The Health and Safety First Aid Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

What is 'adequate and appropriate' will depend on the circumstances in your workplace. This includes whether trained First Aiders are needed, what should be included in a First Aid box and if a First Aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of First Aid needs to determine what to provide.

People at work can suffer injuries or be taken ill. It doesn’t matter whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do or not, it is important to give them immediate attention and call an ambulance in serious cases. First Aid at Work (FAW) covers the arrangements you should make to ensure this happens. It can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones.

This course is ideally suited to any person who has responsibility for First Aid in their workplace.
