First Aid for Schools & Colleges

Education sector first aid trainingThe Education and Care sectors look after a diversity of students, residents, staff and visitors. The sectors all have a first aid training need in order to help fulfill the duty of care requirement that looking after others entails.

In the School or College environment diverse first aid training requirements can be met by the following ITC qualifications:
