We At AMBA are pleased to offer the HABC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work as an accredited qualification. The course will help familiarise you with the roles and responsibilities of the Emergency First Aider, including assessing an incident, recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness, and assisting a casualty who is suffering from injury and illness. You will be assessed on their practical ability to deal with casualties who have stopped breathing, are unconscious, are bleeding and suffering from shock. This course is ideal for smaller workplaces that present few health and safety risks. This course can be adapted to suit a particular audience and is ideal for lower risk businesses, in accordance with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations. The course is run over one day and includes both theory and practical sessions, in a relaxed atmosphere, designed to boost a candidate’s confidence. The Emergency First Aid at Work course replaced the First Aid Appointed Person course in October 2009.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This course is designed for people who want to receive training in emergency first aid and is especially suited for nominated first aiders in smaller, low risk working environments.

The content of this course provides basic lifesaving first aid and workplace health and safety regulations, covering the following:
