Selecting a First Aid Training Provider
(Information For Employers)

As an Employer, you have a number of options available to you when selecting a First Aid Training Provider. HSE does not advocate, promote or support any particular option. You should select the most suitable option for your requirements.

FAIB have produced a document for employers to explain our approach to Quality Assurance, Standards, Guidelines and how we perform Due Diligence against Training Providers.
