ASHI CERTIFIED FIRST AID COURSES
$150 - $250 per person
Do you need a professionally certified First Aid, CPR and AED course?
At First Aid Tuition we offer the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) certified courses. These are excellent, internationally recognised courses that are valid for 2 years.
We offer several different ASHI courses, each with a different focus:
Basic First Aid and CPR / AED Combination Course
Basic First Aid Course
CPR & AED Course
For the above classes you can choose to cover the knowledge and skills for helping with adults only, for adults and children or for adults, children and infants.
There are two ways to take the ASHI courses:
1. Classroom Programme
1 x 6.5hr Classroom Session
2. Blended Programme
1 x Online Theory Programme (3 hrs)
1 x Face-to-face Skills Session (3 - 3.5 hours)
The Blended approach is more popular because it means less classroom time for you. The Online Theory Programme can be completed at your own pace, because the programme saves as you progress, allowing you to complete it over multiple sessions. It consists of a series of online teaching sessions and scenarios followed by questions that the participant must get correct in order to proceed to the next topic. Once you have completed your Online Theory, you can complete the Face-to-Face Skills session.
During the Face-to-Face Skills session we look closely at what it means to be a first aider, legal considerations and work on developing excellent assessment skills. We also revise important theoretical concepts to ensure all participants have a thorough understanding. As the name suggests the skills session involves practising many first aid and CPR skills so all participants will feel comfortable and competent to perform them if required in an emergency.
Lots of time is allocated for practicing hands on training, each participant will be assessed on their primary assessment skills, first aid for an unresponsive person, CPR skills, using an AED, caring for a cardiac arrest, controlling severely bleeding wounds, first aid for choking, anaphylaxis emergency treatment and much more.
Our certified courses are taught through scenario based learning allowing participants the opportunity to apply what they have learnt in varied real-world situations.
As with all First Aid Tuition classes we do require a large element of participation, our classes are fun and interactive to ensure everyone gets the best from the course.
Remote Skills Verification
We do have the option of running our ASHI classes remotely. You will complete the online theory programme as usual and then we will deliver CPR manikins and other essential equipment to your home and assess your skills online. Restrictions will apply. Please do get in touch for more information.
"The ASHI First Aid course was very helpful and I just wish I'd done something similar sooner. Having an instructor with Rachel's background also distinguished it from courses I had taken before ... Would strongly recommend"
"Loved working with Rachel from First Aid Tuition [...] Easy to book, a great set up and lots of flexibility to answer our questions about things we encounter in our day to day, working with kids and in contact sports. Highly recommend!"
A multiple-choice exam can be set if requested. However, is not mandatory because the Online Theory Programme includes assessment.
Number of Participants
First Aid Tuition requires a minimum of 3 participants to run the class. The maximum class size will be capped at 5 people during Phase 3 Heightened Alert as per government guidelines.
On successful completion of the course, you will receive an ASHI digital First Aid Certificate and a digital First Aid and CPR manual.
ASHI requires all First Aid and CPR/AED Certificates to be renewed every 2 years. We run ASHI Certified Refresher Classes for eligible participants. (You are eligible to take a Refresher Class only if your current certificate is still in date.)
A Refresher Class participant does not need to complete the Online Theory Programme, they just need to attend a Face-to-Face Skills Class. However, we also offer the option of a Refresher Plus Course in which the participant can access the Online Programme as a great revision tool.
We are COVID Safe
First Aid Tuition strictly follows Covid-19 social distancing rules, and each participant will be provided with their own equipment.
