What is this qualification about?
This qualification is aimed at the person who requires first aid training that contains additional illness and injury content to that found on a typical one day course.
What does this qualification cover?
The course covers two units: First Aid Essentials and Management of Illness and Injury in Activities. The training is modular and progressive.
Who is it suitable for?
As always this will be determined as a result of the work place risk assessment, but it would be suitable specifically for physical education teachers, teaching assistants, coaches, activity leaders and volunteers. No prior knowledge or experience is required, but you should be at least 16 years of age.
What is the duration of the course?
Each of the two units is normally delivered per day making this a two-day course. In responding to your needs this can also be delivered in combination of two or three hour twilight sessions, midweek or weekend courses. The maximum time to deliver is six weeks if one twilight session is run per week.
How is it assessed?
The practical training is interactive and hands on. Each individual receives an ITC course booklet, which acts as a portfolio log book which must be maintained. Both units have to be passed and this is through practical assessment of performance. The Award is valid for three years.
How can I be confident of quality?
We use an accredited ITC tutor who delivers these courses nationally.
How much will this cost?
The course costs £150+vat per person and this will include a two-course luncheon each day and unlimited tea and coffee. It also includes your registration fee which we pay to ITC First on your behalf, planning, delivery, photocopying, resources, a course manual, assessment, internal verification, course administration and certification.
