If you are to be the first aider for your place of work, you’ll have to do some training first! Lubas Medical’s First Aid at Work training course is designed to give you all the skills and knowledge you’ll need to become a qualified first aider.
Over three days, we’ll cover all aspects of first aid in the workplace, and if you pass the course, you’ll have attained the very highest level of first aid expertise. As with all Lubas Medical courses, the First Aid at Work training is very hands-on, giving you plenty of opportunities to practice the various techniques.
What will I learn?
In a nutshell, you’ll learn everything that a first aider should know! We’ll teach you all the skills you may need when dealing with medical emergencies in your workplace.
Who should attend?
Our first aider course is for anyone in any industry who wishes to become the qualified first aider for their workplace. Every place of work – even low-risk environments like offices – ought to have one fully-qualified first aider on staff in case of emergencies, and this is the course that will make you that person.
How long does it last?
The First Aid at Work training programme is a 3 day course – that’s a total of 18 hours. Most people complete the course in three consecutive days, but we will do our best to be flexible if you need to spread things out. Get in touch for more details on that front.
Here are some of the topics that our workplace first aider course covers:
- What is First Aid?
- Safe Approach & Protocol
- CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
- Managing an Unconscious Casualty

You’ll learn how to manage all the emergencies mentioned above, as well as how to use a first aid kit, and how to keep simple records of the incident.
What qualification will I receive?
At the end of the third day, you’ll undergo a practical exam. This will test your understanding and application of the skills you have learned; if you pass the exam, you will receive a Lubas Medical First Aid at Work certificate (valid for 3 years).
