First Aid RequalificationMCP First Aid Training
e important thing to remember is that as soon as the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace which may well leave the employer with a shortfall of First Aiders. Therefore, it would be prudent to arrange their requalification before they expire.
A minimum of 12 hours spread over at least two days. Ideally, the course should be run over two consecutive days, but can be spread over a longer time period if you so desire, providing it is completed within 7 weeks of starting the course and the training sessions last for a minimum of two hours. Syllabus
A range of subjects are covered including:- • Legalities, responsibilities and reporting • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • Fractures and spinal injuries • Resuscitation and AED awareness • Assessment of the situation
• Control of bleeding • Shock (including Anaphylaxis) • Heart attacks • Head injuries • Sprains and strains • Poisoning • Bandaging • Choking • Eye injuries • Chest injuries • Asthma • Diabetes • Stroke • Burns • Epilepsy
Successful qualification on this course is based on practical assessments conducted throughout the course and written test papers for unit 2. A three year Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (Level 6 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required. Numbers
A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
