First Aid Training

As of 1 October 2013 The Health Safety Executive (HSE) no longer approves training and qualifications for the purposes of first aid at work. The University of Manchester therefore ensures that the First Aid Training carried out is done to a high standard and in accordance with the criteria for first aid training laid out by The HSE.

There are now two qualifications in First Aid, which the University offers:

  • First Aid at Work Certificate 3 day course (Certificate valid for 3 years)
  • Emergency First Aid at Work 1 day course (Certificate valid for 3 years)

The University also offers online training sessions to enable the annual update of your skills.

Completion of this will be a requirement for all first aiders at the University.
