Course Description

Learn about the appointed person role, first aid requirements and emergency first aid.

A first aid appointed person may be responsible for dealing with first aid in low risk environments, or in other environments with small numbers of workers, where a first aid needs assessment indicates that a first aider is not necessary.

This Appointed Person online course provides a good introduction to becoming an appointed person, and helps learners understand the principals of first aid, recognise symptoms, and understand the legal requirements surrounding first aid at work.

This first aid Appointed Person elearning online training course has been developed to provide information on the role of the appointed person, and includes first aid at work, RIDDOR requirements, and the types of emergency first aid situations that can occur.

This online course covers emergency first aid situations such as unconscious casualties, seizures, heart attack, choking, asthma, severe bleeding, broken bones, head and eye injuries, spinal injuries, shock, burns, stroke, diabetes and poisoning.

This Appointed Person online training course contains a variety of text based content, along with image, video, quiz, and other content as necessary to assist your learning.

The Appointed Person training course has been developed to be easy to understand and simple to navigate.

On completion of the course you will be assessed with a multiple choice test. Once you have passed the assessment you will be able to download your certificate for your records. The certificate is supplied in PDF format.

You can proceed through the Appointed Person course at your own pace, and repeat the content as many times as you wish until you feel ready for the final assessment.
