First Aid and AED Instructors Course

If you are wanting to teach first aid and AED courses, the Good Skills Training First Aid and AED Instructors Course is what you are looking for. This course will give you the required prerequisites to be able to go and register to teach first aid or AED with any awarding body. The course will also give those without an approved training and assessing qualification a valid qualification, the CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

As well as all this our First Aid and AED Instructors Course aims to give you the confidence to deliver fun and interactive sessions, so that learners are more likely to take in what you are teaching them and become safe, prompt, effective and confident first aiders.

What do I Get from the Course?

This five-day course uses the CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training syllabus as the starting point, but using First Aid as the method of delivery. This means that the course will update and refresh any prior knowledge you have on teaching and assessing and for those that require it you will undertake the assessments to gain this qualification as all first aid and AED trainers must hold valid training AND assessing qualifications.

Throughout the five days you will be required to devise and deliver micro teach sessions in various areas of first aid. These will all be monitored by our assessors and feedback from these sessions will be given to you as part of your portfolio.

The course will also refresh your first aid at work qualifications, at the end of the course you will have covered the Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work. On top of this we will cover the missing topic areas to enable you to teach Paediatric First Aid and AED.
