First Aid and AED Instructors Course with QNUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training

In 2020 because of the situation with COVID-19, we have developed our remote delivery version of the First Aid and AED Train the Trainer Course with the aim to reduce the amount of face-to-face time and make the most of current technology, to bring our classroom to you remotely. This will involve a mixture of pre-course research and reading, online tutor led sessions, homework, assessed portfolio work and two face-to-face assessment days. You will also be able to access tutor support via email and telephone for the duration of your course as well.

The First Aid & AED Train the Trainer Corse looks to equip potential First Aid Trainers with the skills, knowledge and qualifications required to teach first aid at work and other associated courses. Your course will follow the QNUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training syllabus but using First Aid and AED as the focus of delivery. All your micro teach sessions will be in First Aid, to enable you to start building your portfolio of evidence.
