First Aid Training Providers

ASI Instructors are required to hold Senior First Aid qualifications.

First Aid Training Topics

The First Aid training should cover basic emergency care for injuries and illnesses, including: CPR, cramp, hypothermia, dehydration/heat exhaustion/heat stroke, strain/sprains, fractures, breaks and dislocations, breathing emergencies including choking and asthma, head injuries, eye injuries, bites and stings, bleeding, shock, epilepsy, allergies.  

These courses are usually 1-2 days.  Face to face workshops only.  Online only first aid courses are not accepted.

"First Aid at Work" certificates are generally not accepted.  As they do not cover all topics including hypothermia, dehydration/heat exhaustion/heat stroke, bites and stings.
