Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Events

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement for many jobs such as in healthcare, driving, teaching and many other professions. CPD is required as evidence of a commitment to developing and maintaining basic standards as well as keeping fully up-to-date with best practices and skills. Many of our first aid courses can count towards CPD.

Qualifications

The National School of First Aid Training offer many courses that can count towards CPD such as:

It is advised to check with your professional council or governing body before booking a course that it meets their requirements.

Course development

Our courses are always under review and constantly being updated with the latest legislation and best practices from around the world.

Certification

Our main awarding body for all first aid qualifications and training is ITC First Aid who are authorised and regulated by Ofqual and the SQA.

We can also award many of our first aid qualifications through our alternative HABC or Qualsafe awarding bodies. Please let us know before booking if you would prefer one of these alternative awarding bodies so we can send you the information.

Instructors

Our trainers come from a range of professional backgrounds such as the emergency services, the military and other relevant professionals. We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various work environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful and dangerous situations. Learn more about our trainers and what makes them unique.

Training

Our training is very practical and hands on with a typically 70% practical to just 30% theory. Our courses do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.
