There are many factors to consider when trying to establish how many first aiders are needed in your setting. Click here for more information about First Aid provision in the workplace. We also have a First Aid Requirements Calculator online tool that allows you to simply and accurately calculate how many First Aid at Work First Aiders you need and the level of training they require.

Here at GEM Compliance Training, we deliver a wide range of regulated First Aid training courses that award Ofqual regulated certificates that are nationally recognised including by governing bodies such as Ofsted, Health and Safety Executive etc.

At our COVID-19 secure training venues Bradford, Keighley and Halifax, we regularly hold regulated First Aid public courses, including Paediatric First Aid, First Aid at Work and our all new combined First Aid Courses to name a few. These are open to anybody wishing to book a place as an individual or group.

COVID-19 Course Information: We want to reassure all delegates of our First Aid public courses during this current period of restriction lifting, before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of yourself and others to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. The health and well-being of our delegates and dedicated team will be a priority, which is why our upcoming public courses will be run in a COVID secure training venue with hand sanitisation stations, reduced attendee numbers and social distancing measures in place. We want to reassure all delegates before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of attendees on our courses to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. We have always maintained the highest standards of cleanliness with all our training equipment, but in addition to our usual hygiene processes which include regularly using disinfectant wipes and changing manikin lungs, we are also now giving all delegates their own training pack. Included in this pack will be a brand new & sealed face shield, gloves, bandages, a face mask for use during the training, as well as First Aid handbook for future reference.
