The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require that in order to provide first aid to their employees who are injured or become ill at work, employers must have adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel. Regulation 3(2) states that:

For this purpose a person shall not be suitable unless he has undergone such training and has such qualifications as the HSE may approve.
Run over four days, this course meets all the requirements of current legislation and qualifies the successful candidates to become recognised first aiders in the workplace.
