Training Course Types

You can select the type of class that best fits your schedule and learning style at Newcastle First Aid Courses. Among the classes we offer are

:In-Person: Our traditional classroom setting classes include a mix of lecture and hands-on skills sessions, as well as a final exam that leads to a two-year certification.

Online: These self-paced courses provide virtual instruction in best practises for first aid, but do not allow for skill proficiency to be demonstrated to an instructor. Online certification may not be sufficient to meet workplace safety requirements.

Blended Learning: Our blended learning programmes combine self-paced interactive instruction with in-person skills sessions using award-winning simulation learning. This enables you to learn at your own pace while also demonstrating your abilities to a certified instructor.

A first aid course can provide you with many important skills. Most importantly, you will gain the knowledge and confidence to respond in any emergency situation.

You’ll learn how to assess a casualty’s condition and manage the scene accordingly by providing initial treatment, such as administering CPR or using a defibrillator.

The course teaches how to recognise signs and symptoms of serious illness and injury, as well as how to recognise and treat conditions such as choking, bleeding, shock and fractures. You will also learn how to deal with emergencies such as electric shocks, heart attacks, burns and poisoning. Furthermore, you’ll become familiar with the principles of infection control so that you can minimise the risk of harm to yourself and others.

By taking a first aid course, you can gain the skills and knowledge to help save lives in an emergency situation.

Yes, first aid training definitely looks great on a CV. Employers will be impressed by your commitment to safety and trained skills in such an important area. It can also signal that you are a responsible person who takes their duties seriously and is always looking for ways to improve themselves professionally.

By demonstrating that you have taken the initiative to obtain valuable first aid knowledge, employers will be more likely to consider you for a job. Additionally, having first aid training on your CV can help demonstrate that you are qualified and capable of dealing with any medical emergency situations that may arise.

It also shows that you have good problem solving skills and can think on your feet in difficult circumstances.

No, you do not get paid extra for being a first aider. This is because first aid training and qualifications are voluntary, and employers are not obliged to offer additional pay or rewards for having these qualifications.

The amount of time it takes to train for first aid is dependent on the type and level of training being completed. Generally, a basic awareness course will take around three hours while more comprehensive qualifications such as the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) requires up to one day of training, where as the First Aid at Work (FAW) takes three days.

Yes, you can receive first aid training online. However, if you need first aid for the workplace, you must undertake a practical session as well. Online first aid training courses are a convenient way to learn the basics of emergency care and gain the skills you need in case of an emergency situation.

Online first aid classes generally involve interactive activities, videos, and quizzes which will test your knowledge and give you feedback on how well you have understood the material. The courses are typically self-paced and can be completed in your own time, meaning you can get certified without having to take a day off work or rearrange your schedule.

Most online first aid classes cover the same topics as traditional classroom based courses such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to safely move a patient, and wound care. Depending on the course provider, you may also learn about common medical emergencies such as strokes and heart attacks.
