ResusPlus Training provides First Aid For Appointed Persons training which is designed for staff who work in lower risk environments, have a small number of staff, or where HSE guidelines indicate a first aider is not necessary.

Although the appointed person first aid course is still available we would recommend that candidates review the 1 day Emergency First Aid At Work course (EFAW) introduced by the Health & Safety Executive on 1st October 2009. The EFAW course gives the first aider more options & flexibility in the first aid roles they can cover in the work place.
