First Aid Courses

DSU is able to offer First Aid courses for staff either because it is something they are interested in for their own development or because it is a requirement for their role and the department they work in.  There are currently tthree First Aid courses that we provide as follows:-

Full First Aid at Work Certificate (three days)

This qualifies an individual to administer full first aid and is a qualification that lasts for three years.  Completion of this course would be subject to existing numbers training and budgets.

Emergency First Aid at Work (one day)

This is the minimum First Aid qualification recommended for all staff with first aid responsibility.  It includes managing an incident, summoning an ambulance and basic first aid.

First Aid Annual Update (three hours)

All First Aiders are recommended to attend a three hour update session to refresh their training.
