Dates announced for First Aid Appointed Person course

Workplace Law Training has announced dates for a brand new public training course - First Aid Appointed Person training.  We have run this course for companies in-house for several years, but due to increased demand we will be running a one-day public course in July 2005.

For workplaces that are lower risk or where fully qualified first aiders require additional support, nominated persons can be trained in the basic elements of first aid.

This first aid appointed person course takes place over one day, with continuous assessment leading to the award of a recognised certificate which is valid for three years.

The course will be taking place at Peterhouse College, Cambridge on 18 July 2005. Enjoying a central location in Cambridge, the College provides an ideal learning environment for this first aid course. Places on this course are limited to 14 delegates.
