First Aid Training

Recommended Posts

To deliver first aid training you will need a suitable "teaching" qualification. It used to be called "pettals" but that's now superseded by the award in education and training (AET) or higher. You also need to be be the holder of the qualification. 

 

It gets a little more complicated if you want to deliver the +f element for forestry and arb

 

In order for any certs you issue to be of any value you need to get in bed with an organisation that can cover your audit trail needs, you can do it yourself but its a ton of work for a one man band.

 

One problem you are going to run into is the bit I have put in bold

• Holding a first aid at work qualification/medical registration as detailed in Appendix 1

ii. Knowledge and competency in teaching/training first aid - evidenced by: • Holding an acceptable teaching/training qualification as detailed in Appendix 2 AND either: • Providing an acceptable log of teaching first aid within the last 3 years or • Providing an acceptable record of competently teaching theoretical and practical first aid sessions under the supervision of a suitably qualified Trainer/Assessor

Thanks TreeEquip, I'll get onto one of the Awarding Bodies and see what they say. I've taught first aid in the Military, it's just proving it that I guess will be the problem! I have PTTLs, do you think I'll need to upgrade it into this Level 3 Award in Teaching thingy?
