Can I get accredited first aid certificates for the persons I teach and assess?
first aid awarding body certificates

Yes with this course you can! This option of gaining accredited first aid at work certificates is only available if you have a teaching award and qualification in first aid at work. Ensure you have a valid recognised first aid trainer award recognised by UK awarding bodies. Then simply contact one of the awarding bodies for example SafeCert Awards have easy five-step instructions to gain your approval.

Accredited awarding body certification would for example be as follows:

  • SafeCert Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF)
  • SafeCert SCQF Level 6 Award in First Aid at Work
  • SafeCert Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF)
  • SafeCert SCQF Level 6 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work
How can I get my first aid course CPD accredited?

First Aid CPD accreditation is a simply process to gain accredited CPD certification for the persons you then teach. Once you have the qualification for delivering first aid or have completed a first aid trainer course, you can then apply for CPD accreditation for the courses you delivery.

There are a number of CPD accreditation bodies including CPD UK, CPD Standards Office, CPD Group or SafeCert CPD.  The process to gain approval is you sign up as a centre which is free, then you would sign up for each course or activity you wish to get accredited, for which there is a fee per course approval usually in small monthly payments.

You would then send in the details of the course you wish to be approved with any lesson plans, PowerPoint and assessments you have, so it can be assessed towards accredited CPD Points. CPD Points are equivalent to 1 CPD Point to 1 accredited CPD Hour of activity.  Therefore each course will be accredited to the value of points to complete that activity or course.

Accredited CPD course examples are as follows:

  • Level 2 Award in First Aid Awareness (4 CPD Points)
  • First Aid at Work (Blending Learning Theory) (6 CPD Points)
  • First Aid for Children and Babies – Online Course (2 CPD Points)
How much does a first aid trainer course cost?

It all depends on the quality and accreditation which comes with the course. There are unaccredited first aid trainers courses at low cost but with no standards and no accreditation, the certification would not be recognised by any UK awarding body. The best option is to do an accredited first aid trainer course from one of the UK awarding bodies. Abertay for example provides a 3-day first aid train the trainer course at £375 + vat but there are many companies who offer first aid instructor courses that can be anything up to £700 + vat.

The best practice is to search for a trainer’s course that is recognised by one of the UK awarding bodies, then you will be assured that the first aid trainers course has been fully quality assured and assessed for content.
