First Aid

MCG Training offers a range of First Aid Courses which can be delivered either under our own certification, which is approved by The First Aid Industry Body and assessed on the final day by independent assessors or by delivering Qualsafe Awards Level 3 (QCF) First Aid at Work which is continually assessed by the tutor in both practical and written assessments. (See our competence check on main menu).

(For further information on Qualsafe Awards see ‘Qualsafe Awards’ on above First Aid menu.)
