Who Needs this Qualification?
This qualification is for anyone who requires a first aid qualification for working in the driving industry. There are no previous first aid qualifications needed to undertake this course but all participants must be at least 17 years of age when completing the course. The qualification is valid for three years at which time the learner must undertake the course again in order to maintain the qualification. All drivers must complete 35 hours periodic training every five years following their acquired rights of Initial Qualification. This course counts towards 7 hours of the required 35 hours training or because the certificate is only valid for 3 years drivers can re-qualify within the same 5 year JAUPT period and the training hours will count separately totalling 14 hours of training. All learners must prove their identity with photo ID and show they have the right entitlement on their driving licence before starting the course.
The drivers CPC qualification is usually 7 hours, however Centaur is offering to run an extra 1 hour top up course at the end for no additional fee to include the HSE standard Emergency First Aid at Work course. The course will therefore run from 8am-5pm making it an 8 hour course with 1 hour for lunch or you can finish at 4pm if you do not want to attend the free 1 hour top up course. This course is accredited by the Association of First Aiders (AoFA) and approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT).
First Aid – What do I need
It is recommended that employers conduct a new risk assessment regularly so that they select the most appropriate course and number of first aiders for their business. This involves consideration of a number of factors including hazards and risks in your workplace, number of employees, accident history, lone workers and distribution of workforce.
