Course summary

This one day course can be adapted to suit a particular audience and is ideal for people requiring Appointed Person status. An appointed first aider is someone who can take charge of an emergency situation should the need arise. An appointed person is ideal for small businesses or as a cover for more qualified first aiders. Delegates are provided with the essential skills required to carry out emergency first aid necessary to save a life until someone more qualified arrives to take over. The course material and handouts are used in conjunction with the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, associated guidance from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The excellent way Clare delivered the course and the obvious depth of knowledge and love of subject, really made me enjoy the course. Clare made the course fun, as well as us learning important first aid information. Rather than being sat down to read books, Clare got up and demonstrated and corrected us when we were doing it wrong. I feel like I can remember the clear majority without looking at my notes. Clare could not have done anything better in my opinion, she made us feel confident and not as though we were stupid.

The trainer was very approachable and guided us through the tasks with plenty of encouragement, advice and good humour. I’d definitely be happy to train with SOA Safety again.
