Entry Requirements

As a professionally approved and accredited qualification, requiring the support of risk assessments, safe systems of work documents and insurance this qualification is officially for the 'workplace' and therefore candidates will need to be of working age. Where those of 'pre-workforce age' require a suitable qualification then a community qualification will be more appropriate

Candidates must be at least 16 years of age at the commencement of the course
Must be able to undertake practical activity involving kneeling and laying down

All Active Luton courses are delivered and assessed in English. Tutors must be convinced that you have sufficient fluency in written and spoken English to cope with your course from the start.

Validity Period

36 months.

The HSE recommend that all First Aiders attend annual refresher training to help reduce the impact of 'first aid skills fade’.
