First Aid Training

First Aid is the first assistance or treatment given to a person who is injured or suddenly taken ill. The first aider helps to maintain everyone involved safe and to cause no further harm.

Moonbeam Training offers Ofqual regulated qualifications accredited by Qualsafe awards. (First Aid is no longer regulated by the HSE)

Your certificate should be renewed every 3 years to maintain your qualification.

An annual half day refresher is recommended to keep up with current changes in First Aid.
