Teaching First Aid to New Instructors in Manchester

Teaching First Aid

We have just had a great week introducing others to teaching first aid at our First Aid Trainer Induction Week held at Manchester Climbing Centre.

The week is designed to give new trainers the skills and qualifications to start teaching and assessing first aid training. Assessment skills and techniques are demonstrated and adapted for a range of potential clients groups. By the end of the week the Manchester participants had completed their L3 qualification in ‘Teaching and Assessing First Aid’.

Course participants were also taught how to plan and deliver an Emergency First Aid at Work course (EFAW). During the sessions teaching techniques were refined and candidates were taught essential practical skills such as bandaging and CPR. By the end of the week the group had also gained an EFAW qualification and were delivering the EFAW course as part of their assessment.

Despite such a packed week, course Trainer, Cory Jones, also managed to discuss and demonstrate some techniques on the delivery of Paediatric First Aid as this was a specific request from one of the course delegates.

Setting Up In Business Teaching First Aid

The practicalities of how to set up your own first aid business is also covered during the week, which includes sessions on marketing skills, how to find new clients, insurance, generating first aid certificates and much more.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!

Below is a lovely testimonial, from one of the course attendees, that shows how much value is provided with this course. – Thank you Lauren!

To all at First Aid Training Cooperative,

Firstly, I’d like to say thank you for a fantastic week, I learned so much in a short space of time and am now feeling really confident to start working as a First Aid trainer!

I already have 3 courses booked in and more interest, and it’s only been a week since my course.

The course itself was highly interesting, with its mixture of practical tasks, teaching guidance and assignment work to help extend my newly learnt knowledge and First Aid history. I was engaged the entire week and feel so motivated to train others.

I would personally like to thank Cory for his skill and teaching style which got me questioning and finding out more than I ever thought I would know about First Aid. As a nursery practitioner, it is hugely important I have the right skill set to correctly administer First Aid to the children and adults in my care and I am thankful for the wonderful opportunity I had to be trained by Cory.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a first aid trainer and would be confident in any situation if it were to arise.

Many thanks to your team.

Lauren Kaler
