A minimum of three contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities. Ideally, the course should be run over half a day (3 hours), but the syllabus can be divided into 3 x 1-hour sessions, spread over a 12-month period.

A range of subjects are covered including:

  •  What is first aid?
  • Primary survey
  •  Recovery position
