What is the duration of the course ?
The SLEEC course is preceded by an online training package that delivers most of the theoretical knowledge ahead of the actual course. This allows more time for practical sessions and hands on skill development during the four days of the attended course.
During these four days students will learn all the medical skills required to deal with trauma and medical emergency patients in their working environment. They will be assessed and guided throughout the SLEEC course, culminating in a series of written and practical tests. The training is delivered using a mix of lecture presentation, group scenario exercises and lots of practical skill-based sessions. .
On successful completion of the course candidates are issued a SLEEC practitioner certificate valid for 3 years and an AoFAQ Level 3 Award in the First Person on Scene Intermediate (RQF), also valid for three years. A First Aid at Work certificate can also be issued if required.
As with all our courses, the emphasis is on the development and honing of the skills needed to save life and improve patient outcomes. Delivered by trainers with exceptional medical backgrounds and contextual experience, so they really do know their subject!
We can add any other subject required by you so that the course is tailored to suit you and your environment or workplace.
