First Aid Training

We have trained over 100,000 first aiders. We are amongst the first UK providers to be delivering OFQUAL regulated first aid qualifications.

Which topics will I cover in a first aid course?

Workplace First Aid course contents are prescribed by the Health & Safety Executive for which all our courses adhere; ensuring candidates cover all the areas essential for effective workplace first aid.

To offer some insight, the list above gives some examples of topics which are likely to be covered in our first aid training courses (course dependent).

First Aid is subject to constant evaluation and evolution as the medical science which underpins it moves on.  Because of this ongoing evolution, we regularly review all of our courses to ensure the very latest and best techniques are being presented to our students.

Students can be confident that when attending a Kays Medical course they will be instructed on the most up to date techniques available, in addition to challenging any previous incorrect or outdated knowledge which they may have.

Where do first aid courses take place?

Throughout our 30 years we have delivered first aid training at our Liverpool based training centre, and at customer sites across mainland UK.

All of our individual courses are available at our training centre in Liverpool.  Group courses can be arranged either at our premises or your own site anywhere in mainland UK and Northern Ireland.

Group courses booked at your own premises require a suitable environment for training to take place (details available on request).

Our larger customers require training of many hundreds of individuals a year at many different locations. We manage this entire process for them, providing value and flexibility, fitting entirely within their timetable for staff availability.

  • Defibrillation is now part of our First Aid training syllabus

    Sudden cardiac arrest kills 70,000 per year in the UK. The majority of these are caused by heart rhythm problems which can be treated by immediate application of a defibrillator.

    The chances of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest drop between 7 and 10% for every minute the victim remains untreated. Fortunately we are beginning to see much broader installation of automatic defibrillation devices in public places and high risk areas (e.g. sports facilities).

    Automatic external defibrillators are designed to allow non-medical professionals to deliver life-saving treatment to a victim of cardiac arrest. When individuals also have the knowledge and confidence gained from undertaking a specific AED training course, vital seconds can be gained which can further dramatically improve patient outcome.

    Kays Medical have been delivering defibrillation courses for over fifteen years using best-in-class equipment and techniques, ensuring your life-savers have the best possible chances of administering effective first aid, including:

    Understanding cardiac arrest

    Types of cardiac arrest

    Assessing patients

    Understand an AED

    Administering an AED

    Monitoring patients

    Testing an AED
