First Aid Courses Carrickfergus
Enjoyable First Aid training courses since 1990…
Ashtree Management Services Ltd provide group First Aid Training Courses at your Organisation’s venue throughout County Antrim and Carrickfergus locations. Our experience spans more than 30 years, providing all things Health and Safety to a wide range and totally diverse group of organisations across England & Wales. We understand the importance of being fully HSE compliant from a legislative perspective but can also assist you to promote organisational loyalty: It has been recognised that employees, suppliers, customers and the wider local community respond positively to companies who actively provide and promote face to face training days within their establishments. Getting groups of employees together on site for First Aid training promotes a feeling of safety, well-being and worker value to other employees. Our customers report an improvement in morale after hosting our training sessions and say that they provide a visual reinforcement of the organisation taking their responsibilities seriously.
Our First Aid training courses can be used to provide a basic level of knowledge to comply with legislation and smart companies use our face to face training to proactively empower the work force.

First Aid COURSES
Ashtree Management Services Ltd provide First Aid Training for your employees at your premises.
We are a Registered Centre with Highfield Qualifications to provide Ofqual regulated First Aid training courses in Carrickfergus. We have more than 30 years experience in the First Aid training industry, having seen many changes that have come, gone and not surprisingly – returned.
Legally, the organisation will have completed and reviewed a First Aid Risk Assessment covering at least the following;
- Every employer in the UK, regardless of the size of the company, is legally obligated to plan for the provision of First Aid at work. Employers must make sure that suitably qualified First Aid persons are always available and on your Carrickfergus, County Antrim sites to give or arrange for the provision of first aid. This applies to all instances when personnel are on site ie, site is closed for maintenance – maintenance personnel need first aid cover, parents evening at school – teachers & the parents (general public) need to have first aid cover, office cleaning at night – provision has to be made for “lone working”. The organisation has to cover for all eventualities with the number of qualified “First Aiders”, they have to be available to cover sickness, absenteeism, holidays etc. First aiders must hold a current First Aid training certificate from a qualified/registered provider.
- The employer must provide First Aid equipment that is suitable and adequate for the number of employees + visitors and the nature of the business (office, school, manufacturing, hospitality etc). The employer has a responsibility to access the layout & size of their premises in County Antrim for the provision of First Aid equipment. The contents should be checked periodically to ensure they are within date and then recorded. Our courses discuss your first aid box contents & risk assessments.
Ashtree can assist you to decide which course is most suitable for your needs ranging from our accredited 3 day First Aid at Work course to our 1 day non accredited First Aid in Schools.
We can also provide non accredited courses if these are more suitable for your organisation, your companies “Needs Assessment/Due Diligence” will have been assessed to determine what qualification you are likely to need. We can give assistance with this if needed – just contact us for help.
