First Aid Awareness

It is a requirement that all health and social care workers are ‘first aid aware’.  Different to being a ‘first aider’, this learning resource will help you understand the difference and the benefits of being first aid aware.

Whilst you cannot, legally, become a first aider through DVD, distance, e-learning or similar, being ‘first aid aware’ is important in health and social care settings.

The resource provides detailed instruction on many aspects of first aid that a "first aid aware" person should know about.

As such, this resource is necessary for induction, helpful for refresher, management and vocational training, for example the Care Certificate.

For more information about the Care Certificate click here.

The course can also be taken at our e-learning portal,  

Please note:

This DVD is for awareness purposes only.  If you don't understand the difference, between "first aid aware" and "first aider", that would indicate a need for this DVD or undertaking the e-learning version.
