Overview: Free First Aid for Students

Student First Aid is designed to teach first aid to secondary school students throughout the UK while overcoming the time and cost obstacles with which schools are often faced.

This is done by replacing the conventional classroom-based first aid course with a video-based e-learning course. This makes the programme free to the school and more flexible to implement. Students can learn first aid from home or from a computer lab, allowing them to learn at their own pace and also teaching them valuable computer skills.

CPR on a manikin

Each school then has the option to add a hands-on component, in which the student's cognitive knowledge is evaluated on a manikin by a trained skill evaluator.

Teachers are provided an online dashboard to monitor the students' progress. They can also view completion and test scores and even order cards all from a single online dashboard.

Training of skill evaluators, training on the system, and follow-up service are all included so that implementation is fast and easy. We may also be able to send in one of our national instructors to your school at no cost. This programme is completely free. The only possible expense results from the addition of the hands-on component. More details are available in the Blended Course Implementation section.
