First Aid programmes

HortTours also offers First Aid and Emergency courses.
We are certified as First Aid Instructors with annual further training under the umbrella scheme of the HSE approved training organisation Aid Training Ltd. based in Warminster (UK). We are delighted to offer the following courses:

  • First Aid at Work (FAW) (3 days, 18 hours)
  • Emergency First Aid  (EFA) (1 day, 6 hours)
  • Automated External Defibrillation training (AED) (1/2 day, 4 hours)

All courses are delivered under Aid Training Ltd. regulations and certificates are valid for three years. Certificates are issued approximately 10 days after successful completion of the course by Aid Training. In order to guarantee that the required standards are met, all candidates will need to complete practical and theoretical assessments during the course.
