Candidate pre-requisites

There are no candidate prerequisites as part of this standard.


Our training is face-to-face, allowing us to place you into immersive practical scenarios that build your confidence in dealing with real-life emergencies.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our training materials, whether that is a manikin or a simulated wound, and ensure there is plenty for everyone to get maximum involvement.

The CITB states that for “First aid for CITB-registered levy-exempt employers”: “the class size and candidate/instructor ratio must allow training to be delivered safely and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.” Our trainer-to-participants ratio is a maximum of 1 to 12, often lower and we include a second trainer to act as a “body” for demonstrations.

The CITB require that “learning must include at least 50% of learning activities for candidates to apply learning to manikins, actors, sample scenarios, and incident reports.” Our ratio is much higher with every session including simulations and practical exercises.


For the successful completion of training, candidates must complete an end-of-course practical assessment or knowledge test that measures the learning outcomes and has a pass or fail criteria.

Our courses include the use of real-life scenarios, involving live actors and casualty simulation. To find out more about our casualty simulation training click here.


Mandatory renewal – legislation in this area demands the candidate carry out a 2-day renewal of this standard every three years.

Recommended refreshment – HSE recommends that the candidate completes a refresher of his/her training (i.e. to ensure their knowledge and/or skills are up to date) every year.
