Course Overview

First Aid Instructor and Assessor Training Course with PTLLS

This course is specifically designed for experienced teachers and trainers who want to become a qualified First Aid Instructor and Assessor. The course is ideal for those who already hold a recognised teaching qualification and wish to gain skills and knowledge specific to first aid training.

Our 3 day ‘Fast Track’ First Aid Instructor/Assessor course combines theoretical first aid knowledge and practical teaching sessions, which help to develop the delegate’s ability and confidence. The course helps students build on their current experience and understand how teaching methods affect learning.

With years of experience dealing with real life emergencies, our expert trainers draw on their own teaching and first aid experiences to make learning fun and memorable. This ensures that learners leave with the confidence and vital skills needed to become a successful First Aid Instructor. 

Qualifications Needed to Start

Delegates taking this fast track course should have experience in teaching and will usually already hold a nationally recognised teaching qualification (such as Certificate in Education, PGCE, PTLLS etc.)

A current First Aid at Work certificate is also required. If it has been some time since taking the First Aid at Work course, we advise to delegates refresh their first aid skills prior to attending this course as a thorough understanding of current first aid procedures is required.

Assessment and Certification

The course consists of 24 hours contact teaching time, with an additional 6 hours of self-directed study. Evidence of first aid teaching, assessing, peer feedback and knowledge will be assessed on the course.


On completion of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the role of being a first aid instructor.
  • Demonstrate effective delivery of first aid training.
  • Demonstrate an acceptable level of subject knowledge in first aid.
  • Understand rules and regulations effecting first aid training.
  • Competently assess first aid skills in others.


Successful candidates will receive a First on Scene First Aid & AED Instructor and Assessor certificate.
