I wanted to say thank you very much for the training last week.

I really enjoyed it and have only heard good comments about the training - including people saying that for the first time they felt inspired to do the FAW training! The day was really interesting and your enthusiasm and passion for what you are teaching was evident and made for a great day's training. RS

The HSE guidance suggests that for low hazard work places, such as offices, shops, libraries who employ less than 25 people, as a minimum there should be at least one appointed person. An appointed person takes controls of situation but does not administer first aid. By attending the first part of an Emergency First Aid at Work course the candidate will be trained in the role of Appointed Person. More::

This short 3 hour hands on course aims to give anyone the confidence and skills to deal with an unconscious casualty who is not breathing.

If treatment is not complete within 10 minutes of the arrest the chance of survival can fall to 2%.
