This course will not on its own allow you to become an instructor but it is used as a preparation course before attending a first aid instructor course to give background information on adult, child and infant first aid.  The course also includes modules to prepare you for the AED instructor course. To complete your instructor training you will need to also attend our first aid instructor courses with our sister company, ITG Instructor Training Ltd. The instructor rating is subject to completing the full course and completing the First Aid at Work course unless you are exempt.  To fully set up with ProTrainings, you will need to complete centre application and pay the fee.

This online course is free to instructors attending a ProTrainings or ITG instructor course to prepare you for your training.  To set up a ProTrainings centre, the cost is £250 plus VAT, which will then credit your account with £175 plus VAT in certificate credit.  Therefore, you do not pay the first £175 plus VAT of certificates.
