Free Training for Students

EFR Training enable schools to offer a fully certified Basic Life Support, CPR & AED course to their Key Stage 5 students for zero cost, an excellent incentive that adds value to your educational offering while providing students with valuable life skills.

We provide this training under contract agreement. The contract requires that a minimum amount of staff are trained each year over a 4 year period in either Emergency First Aid at Work or Emergency Paediatric First Aid and in return we will train your Key Stage 5 students for free.

The cost of training can be reclaimed using the Fundae so effectively your organisation will be able to increase the number of trained first aiders, add value to your educational offer, provide students with a useful life skill and help create a generation of lifesavers.

If your organisation needs help with the Fundae process then our gestor is at hand and specialises in this area. We have also prepared a guide on how this process works. Read more
