WCVYS in conjunction with their partners Hands on First Aid Training, are offering First Aid Courses to volunteer youth and community workers working in Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull. 

This is a Health & Safety Executive (HSE) approved course and is designed for people who want to receive training in emergency first aid and is especially suited for nominated first aiders in smaller, low risk environments.

About the Trainers

The Trainers come from Paramedic and voluntary sector backgrounds so are well suited to tailor First Aid Programmes for youth and community environments.
