Altta First Aid Offers 4 First Aid Courses

The Altta Group exist solely to provide an extensive range of training, from Mental Health Courses to Health and Safety. 

Altta First Aid provides first aid training courses for people who have been chosen to be the company’s first aider. Other courses we offer are suitable for Teachers, School Nurses, or anyone who is in charge of the care of a child. 

First Aid treatment is all about the welfare of the injured parties, and also the welfare of the first aider. We ensure that all people that take our courses have the best training to manage any first aid emergencies. Our team of First Aid Trainers are from a range of different backgrounds; from frontline security to firefighters. We also feel it’s important that our trainers are more than somebody who has read a book and completed a course. But someone who has had the first-hand experience. 

We provide four main First Aid Courses. But of course, if you do not think any of these courses will benefit your needs, we can tailor a bespoke course just for you. Also, although based in Peterborough, we ‘re able to provide these courses at venues and places of your choice. 

3 Day First Aid At Work Course 

This 3 Day Emergency First Aid At Work course runs over three days and is for employees who have been chosen to be the company first aider. The course covers five main areas of first aid; Cardiac Problems, Initial Care, Specific Injury Management, Illness Management, and other Primary Care First Aid problems. 

We also require no end test, instead, the instructor will demonstrate each section and the candidates will need to complete the task to the required standards. Although candidates do need to take a theory paper to confirm that learning has taken place. You’ll receive a first aid book via email after the course, which will keep you updated for the three years that the qualification is valid. You’ll also be given a chance to subscribe to video refreshers. 

1 Day Emergency First Aid At Work Course
