NOTE: This First Aid course is particularly suited to low-risk workplaces that do not require a qualified first-aider but must appoint somebody to be in charge of the first aid arrangements. It is also best practice for employers to provide general first aid training to all employees, which this RoSPA-accredited course effectively achieves.

Through out the course there are short 'Knowledge Checks'.

At the end of the course is a 20 question assessment.

To successfully complete the course candidates are required to achieve 80% in the final assessment. The assessment may be retaken as often as required.

On successful completion candidates will be automatically emailed their completion certificate.

The completion certificate contains the candidate name, course title, date and a validation code which can be authenticated via echo3education.

Some courses also offer a digital badge so your success can be shared online through websites like Linkedin. Sharing the digital badge requires free third party software. echo3education are happy to explain the process.

General first aid training for all employees has clear benefits and could prove life-saving

Marian asked:

Hello, is this course suitable for the field of construction? thanks

Answer:

Hi, yes it would be useful for a first aider on a construction site and covers many likely issues but its not created specifically for construction. We offer Working at Height which covers suspension trauma. Both may be appropriate. Regards, echo3 team

Saida asked:

How long is this qualification valid for? thanks

Answer:

Hi Saida, Businesses must provide 'appropriate' first aid equipment and training. I would suggest that 60min refresh via an online course like this is appropriate every year and not too much of a burden, time wise or financially. Certainly no more that every 3 years for a first aider. It all depends on your organisation there are no absolutes I can provide I'm afraid. Its is fair to say best practice in many organisations is a yearly knowledge refresh. Regards, echo3
