Emergency First Aid eLearning is an online course covering how to treat a casualty with an illness or injury until the emergency services arrive. The content will give you a base knowledge of first aid techniques that can help to reinforce existing knowledge or set you up to complete the whole Level 3 qualification.
You can also use the course to complete the theory elements of the classroom-based Emergency First Aid course. Please note: although you will cover practical areas during the course, you will still need to complete the demonstrations separately in the classroom to gain the whole Level 3 qualification.
The Emergency First Aid course is split into 6 modules, each covering the required content to pass the course. The course is delivered through a range of videos, interactive exercises, multiple-choice questions and a final exam.
The course modules are as followed:
