Our range of First Aid training courses help you to gain the skills you need to preserve life in emergency situations while working at sea and especially onboard offshore wind turbines.

This is one of our most detailed and varied subject areas, with GWO accredited First Aid training programmes, Arqiva accredited First Aid at Height modules, a selection of Level 3 Awards in general, emergency and paediatric First Aid, and our bespoke Complete Training Solutions Wind Farm Medic qualification.

Together they allow you to prepare for lifesaving situations, to reduce the effects of injuries, and to help ensure the comfort and survival of injured individuals until rescue can be achieved.

Find out more about each of these important training modules below or on the detail page for each training course, or contact us for more information and any other general enquiries.

GWO Accredited First Aid Training Courses

Gain a GWO accredited First Aid qualification on our two-day training course, which counts as part of your GWO Basic Safety Training to allow you to work in the offshore renewable energy industry.

The course covers the techniques that you might need to put into practice during a medical emergency aboard an offshore wind turbine, with realistic recreations of that working environment used as the setting for practical sessions.

We offer two GWO accredited First Aid training courses:

  • GWO First Aid is for anyone who does not already hold a valid GWO First Aid certificate or to replace an expired certificate that was not renewed in time.
  • GWO First Aid Refresher is a one-day course that saves both time and money when renewing an existing GWO First Aid certificate before its two-year expiration date.

To find out more or to book a place on an upcoming GWO First Aid training course, visit the booking page for the course you are interested in, either GWO First Aid or GWO First Aid Refresher.

Arqiva First Aid at Height

First Aid at Height is part of our suite of Arqiva accredited training courses which also includes modules covering safety on towers and on rooftops, rigging and working around radio transmitters.

On its own, this module is a one-day overview of the kinds of incidents and injuries you might encounter when working at height, and how to safely respond to reduce pain and distress and preserve life.

Alternatively we offer a full five-day programme of accredited Arqiva training that covers all of the modules relating to safety at height – contact us for more details about this.

We offer a number of Level 3 Award First Aid training courses including:

  • Level 3 Award First Aid at Work (3 days)
  • Level 3 Award Emergency First Aid at Work (1 day)
  • Level 3 Award Paediatric First Aid at Work (2 days)

Together these can help you to gain a general overview of workplace First Aid, including appropriate responses and treatments in the most pressing of emergencies, and techniques suitable for use with injured children.
