Our 3-day First Aid Response Training course trains people to become First Aid Responders on their work floor. A First Aid Responder may be a healthcare practitioner, or a member of the public who has undertaken a First Aid Response training course incorporating the Cardiac First Response standard. In addition to CFR skills, the First Aid Responder possesses defined skills in the further management of a patient who has become suddenly ill or injured in the pre-hospital environment until the arrival of emergency medical services.

The First Aid Responder is able to assess and manage these patients in accordance with PHECC clinical practice guidelines (CPGs).

Please note that First Aid Responders have to follow a 2-day refresher course every 2 year. This refresher course can be accessed here
