Why should I take this course?
This course is a great option if you are looking to top up your first aid knowledge but don’t want to spend time and money on classroom training. This option is a great way to refresh your knowledge in between requalification courses. The eLearning course allows you to save both time and money. Time and money that you would otherwise spend paying for and travelling to a classroom course.
The knowledge you gain is highly transferable; you can apply it both at home or in the workplace. Not only that, but the skills you gain could be potentially life-saving.
