Become a First Aid Trainer
We are now running ITC First Aid Trainer Induction Courses. This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to deliver regular first aid courses for their organisation, or place of work, or who wants to deliver first aid courses professionally. ITC First Aid Ltd is an awarding body for first aid qualifications in the UK.
To become an ITC First Aid Trainer you will need to:
- Attend a 2 day First Aid Trainer Induction Course.
- Hold a current First Aid at Work certificate.
- Hold a current teaching qualification. The minimum qualification that will be accepted is a level 3 certificate in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS Award) or equivalent.
- Prepare a scheme of work and lessons plans for the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course.
- Be assessed as being able to teach and assess the EFAW course.
Once you have successfully completed the First Aid Trainer Induction Course, you will receive all the resources you need to learn how to deliver the EFAW course, including a trainers pack, a DVD detailing the elements of the course and teaching notes.
Within three months of attending the First Aid Trainer Induction Course you will need to teach the EFAW course to a group of eight people, making appropriate assessment decisions. This will be overseen by a senior trainer and your performance assessed throughout.
Why chose ITC?
ITC first aid courses are recognised throughout the UK as being interactive, meaningful and of high quality. As a trainer ITC will provide you with access to their website to promote your courses, administrative support, and access to a network of skilled and professional trainers. You will receive a package of comprehensive support during your initial training and ongoing support as you develop the range of courses you wish to deliver.
What other courses can I deliver?
Once you are signed off to deliver the EFAW course you can begin working towards delivering other ITC courses including:
- Outdoor First Aid Courses
- Paediatric First Aid courses
- Sports First Aid Courses
- AED courses
This will involve you first observing these courses and then assisting in their delivery. Once you have gained sufficient experience your will be assessed delivering a course by an experience trainer.
What will it cost me?
The First Aid trainer induction course will cost you £490+vat. This includes support and all of the resources you need to plan an EFAW course. There will be an additional cost of £250+vat for your EFAW assessment, however, this can be be split between 2 trainees, i.e. two trainees delivering to a course of 8 people. If the initial EFAW assessment is failed, there will be an additional cost per assessment. You will also need to arrange insurance and purchase equipment.
