Appointed Person Training - 1/2 day

When an employer assesses their first aid needs and a first aider is not necessary, the minimum legal requirement is to appoint a person to take charge of the first aid arrangements. These include looking after equipment, facilities and calling the emergency services.

Who is the Appointed Persons course for?

Appointed persons do not need first aid training. Therefore it is important to remember that appointed persons are not first aiders and should not attempt to give first aid for which they have not been trained. THIS COURSE IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE STATUTORY EMERGENCY FIRST AID AT WORK QUALIFICATION

They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations. Learn more about our trainers and what makes them unique.


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.
