First Aid at Work

First Aid at Work



First aid is a potentially life-saving skill, and this First Aid at Work Course aims to teach you the basics of recognising danger and reacting appropriately.

The course begins with an introduction to first aid, which provides you with knowledge on regulations, statistics and what to keep in your first aid box. It then looks at the primary and secondary surveys, providing you with the information you need to assess a person’s injuries, place them in the recovery position and apply bandages if necessary.

You will then learn how to treat a variety of injuries, illnesses and conditions. These range from secondary injuries such as burns and scalds, eye and head injuries and broken bones, to asthma, allergic reactions, diabetes, heart attacks, hyperventilation, poisoning and drowning. Epilepsy, strokes, nosebleeds and sprains are also covered. You will also be taught how to administer CPR for adults, children and infants.

You never know when first aid skills may be required, but with this course you will at least feel prepared and confident should a situation arise.

  1. First Aid at Work has glitchy questions, poor practical instruction and unsuitable imagery.


    This course was a reasonable refresher, but would be poor instruction for anyone who had not had first aid training previously.
    Specifically it:
    1) Gave basic text descriptions for practical tasks where video tuition or animations would have been far more suitable. This includes placing a casualty in the recovery position and carrying out CPR, both of which require far more practical instruction for an untrained person than the brief text given.
    2) Has unsuitable imagery in a large number of slides, especially in modules 1 and 2. Sometimes these show tasks being carried out that are not part of the training, and would therefore be misleading for a student, such as taking a pulse from the neck of a casualty, or putting the casualty in a support stretcher. At other times the image is of a condition totally unconnected with the subject of the slide, and is simply a stock first aid image.

    The assessment side of the course was glitchy, and made the following errors for me:
    a) a practice question during training that was answered correctly was deemed incorrect, and after repeated fails the correct answer given was the one originally entered.
    b) order of answers were randomised, so that ‘all of the above’ could feature as the first answer, and ‘all of the above’ was used on a question where ‘any of the above’ should have been the answer.
    c) the same question came up twice in my mock exam and twice in my real exam
    d) around 5 questions came up in both my mock and real exam. Answers were then auto-filled in my real exam because I had already answered the questions. However, when I went to submit the test, it warned me that I had not answered all questions. It had therefore not recognised that these answers were autofilled, and I had to carefully re-click over all my answers to ensure they were selected. Had I not done this I could easily have failed the test even though all correct answers were marked on screen.

    Finally, the PDF certificate should be included in the course fee, especially on a course that advertises itself as having “no hidden costs”.

    I would not recommend this course to others.
