SECAmb runs one-day Public Emergency First Aid courses

09 December 2016

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is offering a one-day Emergency First Aid Training Course at its Make Ready Centres in Polegate on 14 January and in Chertsey, on 21 January 2017.

Ambulance LogoThe specially designed and accredited course is suitable for small and low risk businesses to help them meet the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) requirement to have an appointed person with defined first aid skills working on their premises.  It is also an opportunity for any member of the public wanting to gain or improve their emergency first aid skills.

On completion, successful attendees will receive an Ofqual approved certificate in Emergency First Aid and a training manual.

The successful trainees will have acquired the following skills:

  • Understand the role of the First Aider
  • Situation Assessment
  • Reporting and Record Keeping
  • Administer First Aid to an unconscious casualty
  • Resuscitation, adult, child and infant protocols
  • Choking, adult, child and infant protocols
  • Wounds and Bleeding
  • Shock
  • Minor Injuries


SECAmb’s Volunteer Operations Manager, Emma Ray, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer an accredited Emergency First Aid Course for the general public. The course costs £90 instead of the usual £105 and this includes a certificate that is valid for a period of three years. The job of our highly experienced and professional trainers is to ensure that they share their skills and knowledge with the people they are training so that their expertise can be transferred to other people helping our wider community.”

To book a place for either event, please email or call 07795 667840.

For those not able to make the events in Polegate and Chertsey, a range of other first aid courses is available.
