Level 2 Award: Emergency first aid at work

This course is available on a bespoke basis for group bookings and is also scheduled to run regularly at locations across Wiltshire. Scheduled courses are open to everyone.

If your organisation's assessment of first aid needs highlights the need for qualified first aiders, then this course will equip registered first aid personnel with the knowledge and skills to handle a range of potentially emergency situations capably and professionally, remaining calm under pressure. The course consists of practical and theoretical activities; some pre-course activity could be required. You'll cover a range of subjects including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Resuscitation
  • Burns
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Anatomy
  • Choking
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Minor injuries
  • Epilepsy
  • Basic hygiene in first aid
  • Bleeding control
  • Shock

You'll be assessed during the day by the instructor and there will be a multiple choice test at the end of the course. On satisfactory completion of the course and assessments, participants will achieve a Level 2 Award in 'Emergency first aid at work', valid for three years.


There are no special requirements to enrol; it is expected that participants will be taking an active role as a qualified first aider in the workplace.


This course will take place over 1/2 a day.
