eLearning Courses

We also offer the eLearning version of the First Aid at Work course. This course does not allow the learner to become a qualified first-aider. The eLearning format only includes the theory elements of the course so, therefore, isn’t a full qualification.

Once the learner has booked, we will send them their login information to the eLearning portal. They will then be able to access the course to complete each unit in their own time. The learner must complete the course within one year before the license expires.
