Ideal for those who are able to access CQC (Care Quality Commission) funding, this regulated and nationally recognised qualification enables Learners to gain the skills and knowledge needed to administer safe, prompt, effective first aid in situations which can arise when providing care.
Designed to encompass the QA Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) as well as additional assessment criteria on Accident Reporting, Learners who successfully complete this qualification will gain two regulated qualifications.
The QA Level 2 Award in First Aid Essentials (QCF) qualification has been designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people they are caring for when dealing with an emergency.
During this 1 day course, Learners will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of first aid situations, including: managing an unresponsive casualty, CPR, choking, external bleeding, shock and minor injuries.
Successful Learners will receive a QA Level 2 Award in First Aid Essentials (QCF) certificate as well a plastic aide memoire, both personalised with their Centre’s details.
