Basic First Aid Level 2 (VTQ) at a Glance

We have been recognised as an endorsed provider from Skills for Care, earning the prestigious distinction as a Centre of Excellence within training and health & social care.

Don't be misled by the word "basic." This course covers some of the most important first aid skills you can learn, including recovery position, CPR, choking, bleeding, shock, burns and more.

Basic First Aid is aimed where training is needed that does not comply with HSE rules but does cover first aid subjects with no set minimum time requirements making it a flexible course for all. The course covers primary and some secondary skills allowing the flexibility to add extra subjects where needed. This course does not cover workplace training where the EFAW, FAW and Appointed Person course is better suited.

This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.

All our first aid courses fully meet the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021.

This qualification and most of the other ProTrainings qualifications are Endorsed by TQUK to show our commitment to extra levels of compliance and quality assurance.
