Our First Aid for Teenagers courses are incredibly popular and as parents ourselves we ensure we cover all the common first aid emergencies and empower everyone with confidence to keep themselves that bit safer and be able to help each other when it really matters. We run regular scheduled courses aimed specifically at teenagers (but if you can’t make any of these dates, teenagers are also welcome on our 3 hour Emergency First Aid courses). We also love running bespoke courses for groups of friends and are happy to tailor them for specific requirements such as post exam trips away, gap years and sports qualifications.
For Duke of Edinburgh Awards, our online learning often proves an ideal solution as it can be divided into small sections and completed over a 3 or 6 month period. We are more than happy to assist with the assessment and would strongly recommend they attend one of our practical courses which will give them an ideal preparation for their expedition as well.
Got a call today en route to my course from one of the mums of the Rokeby boys I taught. Her son, Thomas, was walking back from school when a man collapsed in front of him and Thomas instantly recognised it was a seizure and knew what to do? He called the ambulance and stayed with the man until help arrived. He said he remembered what I had told him about seizures and coped really well. He’s only 13, but did a great job!
Made my day!!
Upcoming dates for Scheduled Courses:
When completing the booking form, please put the name of the teenager taking part even if they are not the one making the transaction or the booking. This is to ensure the correct name appears on the certificate.
If you can’t make any of these dates, teenagers are more than welcome to join a standard 3 hour Emergency First Aid course: this covers adult, baby and child and training is tailored to attendees’ needs. All teenage content will still be covered, we just know from experience that teenagers appreciate having others their age on the courses with them!
We also have a specific online course just for teenagers!
If time is tight, this is a great way to learn skills without having to attend a full day session.
This course is ideal for the Duke of Edinburgh skills section. Your teenager can, of course, consolidate the e-learning with a practical course as well.
If needing DofE certification, upon completion of the online course First Aid for Life can complete the online assessment that will prove the course has been taken.
With the creation of a bespoke course for a group, we will always tailor the course to your requirements, so please let us know if there is anything you would particularly like us to include – we are used to organising specialist training around specific requirements.
If you are a sailing or skiing instructor, or training to be a professional sports coach it is likely you will need the regulated EFAW full day course. If this is the case please click below for more information. Please note you need to be 16 or older to take the accredited version of this course.
