Standard First Aid with CPR  AED (Blended e-Learning-Online)

First aid has traditionally been taught entirely within the classroom but people learn in different ways and at different speeds. This approved Blended eLearning Standard First Aid with CPR & AED course has been designed so that you can complete it at your own pace, in your own time. Not only will you learn more effectively but you will also have more fun learning.

This course has two components:

  1. An online first aid theory component
  2. A classroom based first aid practical skills component

The online component covers all relevant theory you need to complete before taking the practical training session. Each module will be thoroughly explained with minimal technical terminology and include a helpful review section. The theory component may take up to eight hours to complete, depending on your knowledge base but note that you do not have to finish all of the theory in one seating (one module a day is the recommended pace to maximize learning). You can log into and out of the course as you please. If you are interrupted, just log out and log back in when you have more time and your place in the course will be maintained.

You must complete the online theory before you can participate in the classroom practical training session. We recommend that you aim to finish the online theory at least one week before your practical training session. The whole course, including the online and in class components, must be completed within 30 days. If you have any questions while working on the theory component, you can e-mail us from within the course and we will endeavor to respond within 24 hours.

Once you have completed your theory course you are ready for your practical training. Rescue 7 will booked the Day-2 Practical Training session and then thirty (30) days prior to the Day-2 Practical Training, on-line access codes will be issued to the client. At the practical training session, an accredited instructor will be able to answer any questions that you have as a result of the theory course and will then demonstrate a number of first aid techniques including: emergency scene management, and treatment for shock, unconsciousness, fainting, adult choking, severe bleeding and much more. Participants attending the Day-2 practical training will be given a Day-2 recap quiz to review everything that was covered online, and only those with a passing mark will be able to participant in the practical training session. The minimum passing mark on the Day-2 recap quiz is 50 percent.

First aid course overview

This course is designed for anyone who may find themselves first on the scene of an incident involving a casualty. This may include a workplace environment – including shops, restaurants or in an office – whilst volunteering, or in a personal capacity such as an accident or an incident at home.

Why take this first aid course?

The course teaches learners to follow the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines for basic to advanced life support training. Learners will know what to do if they are first on the scene of an incident, how to assess the situation as a potential danger zone and understand the importance of the recovery position and how they may apply it.

Upon completion of this course, learners will understand what is meant by the AVPU scale (Alert, Voice, Pain, and Unresponsive), be able to follow guidelines for the use of Automated External Defibrillators and know the key processes to follow in an emergency and what to do for each one: Danger, Response, Shout, Airway, Breathing, and Circulation.

First Aid training outcomes

  • Know what to do if you are first on the scene of an accident
  • Be able to assess the situation as a potential danger zone
  • Understand what is meant by AVPU
  • Understand Danger, Response, Airways, Breathing and Circulation
  • Understand the importance of the recovery position and how to apply it

CPD certified

The content of this course has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.

Does this course make me a qualified first-aider?

Completing this course does not qualify you to be an official first-aider. This course content is provided for information only and should not be treated as a substitute for the medical advice of your own doctor or health care professional.

To become a qualified first-aider you will need to undertake workplace first aid training that includes at least 18 training and assessment contact hours. More information on the legal duties of an employer can be found at:

Course duration

The first aid training and test usually take between 1 to 2 hours to complete (depending on learning speed), which is equivalent to 4 hours face-to-face group training.

Test and certificate

The end of course test consists of 15 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve an 75% pass mark, and, if necessary, may attempt the test 3 times at no extra cost, having revisited the training material.

If learners do not immediately achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our Learner Support team.

You can download and print a digital first aid certificate immediately upon completion.
