WHY SHOULD I BECOME FIRST AID CERTIFIED?

 

Having a First Aid Certificate can be a useful tool to have in every day life alongside the necessity to have one in order to work specific jobs. By having a first aid certificate, you will be qualified and knowledgeable to perform any essential and necessary treatment within your abilities before paramedics arrive (if the situation is in need of them). 

Our First Aid Course will  be taught with a mixture of both practical and theory. You'll learn how to examine a casualty, use a defibrillator, familiarize yourself with basic life support and learn how to control bleeding and trauma.

If you work within the fitness or massage industry then it is highly likely you need to be First Aid certified in order to gain insurance to practice your work, especially if you are Self-Employed. This certification will need to be renewed every 3 years and this can be done by simply retaking the course. 

We advise all our SSM Training Academy Students who are looking to, or are currently studying their Sports Massage or Personal Training qualifications to get certified as soon as they can so they can work in the professional field. 

Our First Aid course is suitable for absolutely everyone aged 16 or over whether it is the first First Aid course you are taking or just a refresher!

HOW LONG ARE THE COURSES AND WHEN DO THEY RUN?

Our First Aid Training Courses is just a one day course which runs for 6 hours including breaks. You will receive your certificate at the end of the day. We only have space for 10 people per course to ensure best learning for everyone.
