Entry Requirements

The qualification is suitable for learners aged 16+ and it is recommended that learners hold a minimum of level 1 in literacy or equivalent to undertake the course.

Due to the practical nature of the first aid assessment there are physical demands. Learners must be able to get to the floor unaided and successfully demonstrate all required elements of the practical assessment on their own, with the casualty on the floor, as in a real-life situation. For example, a learner will need to get to the floor unassisted and demonstrate effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a manikin at floor level. If a learner has any concerns they should contact us before attending the course.


Qualification Assessment

The qualification is assessed through practical demonstration.

There is no grading of the assessment, learners pass or are referred.


Practical assessment

Scenarios are set recreating a real-life situation as far as possible to enable a learner to demonstrate their knowledge and practical skills. During the practical assessment the learner will be asked set related oral questions by the trainer/assessor.  The practical assessment is ongoing throughout the course with the trainer/assessor making learners aware of when they are being assessed and what they are required to demonstrate.  A learner must satisfactorily complete each scenario to pass the practical assessment.
