To help in the current Coronavirus outbreak and to give families a valuable life skill we have made our popular Family First Aid video online course free to take.  You only pay a reduced cost of £5 plus VAT (Formally (£24.95 plus VAT) if you want to and to get a PDF certificate but only if you want to.

We have found that many families and parents do not know the basics of first aid and do not really know what to do if they come across an accident or serious illness. Learning these basic life-saving skills is easy with the ProTrainings Family First Aid course. This course can be taken as a classroom course nationally with an approved and monitored ProTrainings instructor or it can be taken online using video-based learning.

This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.

First aid is not difficult to learn or deliver and whether you choose a class or online course both courses follow through from immediately life-threatening conditions like a cardiac arrest to less urgent problems like minor injuries.

You never know when something could happen to someone in your family, so learning now will prepare you to deal with an emergency situation should it arise.

The course aims are to give an understanding of the needs of a family. It covers primary and secondary care skills for adults, infants and children. Knowing what to do in an emergency is an excellent life skill to learn and the course covers many subjects that you may come across.

This qualification and most of the other ProTrainings qualifications are Endorsed by TQUK to show our commitment to extra levels of compliance and quality assurance.

Companies, organisations or agencies are encouraged to contact us for group discounts and information about onsite training and how our system can be used to track and monitor your staff training.
