Course media


Our First Aid Training Course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of first aid and the necessary steps to take in different situations. Starting from the basic aim and initial steps of first aid, the course progresses towards providing hands-on knowledge of resuscitation techniques, secondary assessments, and recovery positions. Additionally, learners will gain expertise in identifying and treating fractures, head, and eye injuries, as well as choking, wounds, bleeding, and burns.

The course also covers chronic conditions and medical emergencies such as hypothermia and poisoning. The theoretical nature of the course enables learners to acquire knowledge from the comfort of their own homes or offices. Upon completing the course, learners will be awarded a certificate of completion, proving their proficiency in first aid.


Upon completion of the course, learners can obtain a certificate as proof of their achievement. You can receive a £4.99 PDF Certificate sent via email, a £9.99 Printed Hardcopy Certificate for delivery in the UK, or a £19.99 Printed Hardcopy Certificate for international delivery. Each option depends on individual preferences and locations.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
