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

Yes with this course you can! This option of gaining accredited first aid for mental health at work certificates is only available if you have a teaching award and qualification in first aid for mental health. Ensure you have a valid recognised first aid for mental health 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 Understanding First Aid for Mental Health (RQF)
  • SafeCert Level 3 Award in First Aid For Mental Health in the Workplace (RQF)
  • SafeCert Level 3 Award in First Aid for Mental Health
How can I get my first aid for mental health CPD accredited?

First Aid for Mental Health CPD accreditation is a simple process to gain accredited CPD certification for the persons you then teach. Once you have the qualification for delivering mental health first aid or have completed the first aid for mental health trainer course, you can then apply for CPD accreditation for the courses that 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 Mental Health First Aid Awareness (4 CPD Points)
  • Mental Health First Aid at Work (6 CPD Points)
  • Looking after your Mental Health – Online Course (2 CPD Points)
How much does a first aid for mental health trainer course cost?
first aid for mental health trainer course cost

It all depends on the quality and accreditation which comes with the course. There is unaccredited first aid for mental health trainers courses at low cost but with no standards and no accreditation, the certification would not be recognised by any UK awarding body. There is also the Mental Health First Aid Trainer England MHFA but this can be a few thousand for a trainers course. The best option is to do an accredited first aid for mental health trainer course from one of the UK awarding bodies. Abertay for example provides a 3-day SafeCert Awards Approved first aid for mental health trainer course at £375 + vat, but there are many companies who offer first aid for mental health 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 for mental health trainers course has been fully quality assured and assessed for content.
