If you only require a basic first aid course, you may want to consider completing yours online. Most training instructors in the UK offer both classroom first aid courses as well as online courses.
Online Vs. Classroom
With a classroom first aid course, you’ll spend a lot of time looking at the presentation, though you will also get the opportunity to role play as the instructors show the class how to carry out each of the basic first aid methods.
With an online course you’re restricted in the sense that you will only be able to read the information on your computer screen and watch video tutorials, but there isn’t any one-on-one time. Of course, if you feel you would learn better in a practical environment, the classrooms course will be right for you, but for some people online courses will be just as effective.
