Guidelines for Candidates and Employers

The duties of a First Aider can be physically demanding. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that candidates are free from any condition which would affect their capability, and that they have the aptitude to cope with an intensive course of study.

We welcome candidates with special educational needs and disabilities for training, but it remains their employer’s responsibility to ensure that they are appropriately supported in their workplace
