This First Aid training course has been created by the Virtual College, in partnership with First Response Training, to give learners the underpinning knowledge of how to act in the event of an incident requiring first aid assistance.
The overall aim of this module is to provide an overview of what you need to know to act safely and effectively in the event of an incident requiring first aid assistance.
On completion of this module learners will:
- Know what to do if you are first on the scene of an incident
- Be able to assess the situation as a potential danger zone
- Understand what is meant by AVPU
- Know the key processes to follow and what to do for each one: Danger, Response, Shout, Airway, breathing
- Understand the importance of the recovery position and how to apply it
The learning material is underpinned by the use of video scenarios and learners are encouraged to consider how you would apply these in their own situations.
The module comes with an online assessment and certificate on achieving a satisfactory pass mark.
Having completed the learning and assessment, learners will get the opportunity to take the "primary survey challenge" - you are first on the scene of an accident where someone is injured, pit your wits against the 3 minute clock and see how you do in this real life scenario. This "Challenge" is not part of your assessment - it is there simply to help you consolidate your learning.
