Three-Day First Aid Course based in Peterborough and Cambridge

Why Should My Company Do a First Aid Course? 

All companies must meet the requirements of section 3(2) of the Health and Safety First Aid Regulations 1981. With our 3-day first aid course, you or your selected employees will have the certificate that helps meet those duties within the Regulations, this is why our Three-Day First Aid Course is ideal.

In previous years there was a slight change in the first aid certification; however, here at Allta, we approved the new delivery of our first aid courses, including the teaching format for our QF 3-day level 3 First Aid at Work course; this course can be taken in our Peterborough avenue or another venue of your choice. 

The Structure of our 3-day first aid course is an ongoing assessment with no test at the end of the three days; we have chosen this approach to help candidates feel more at ease during their first aid course, hopefully allowing them to absorb information. Throughout the training, the instructor will demonstrate and explain each section of the course; following the demonstration, and the candidates will be expected to complete the task to the required standards.

What Happens During The Course?

Throughout the three-day first aid training course, the candidates will be expected to complete a theory question paper to ensure learning has taken place. With prior notice, the theory people can be given verbally should a candidate have learning or language difficulties.

Once your three-day first aid training has been concluded, you will receive a first aid book from your first aid course via email, this will help you stay up-to-date for the next three years, and your qualification will be valid. You will also be able to subscribe to video refreshers throughout those three years to you or your selected employee so that you can remain prepared for any first aid crisis.
