Assessment and certification

People attending our workplace First Aid courses are trained and assessed by one expert trainer/assessor whilst the course is progressing. Assessment will be through observation along with some written exercises. Whilst these written elements are straightforward, candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.

Candidates will receive a certificate on completion of summative continuous assessment by the trainer.
