Five reasons to think about becoming a First Aid Trainier
There are many great reasons our trainers could give you for becoming a First Aid Trainer. We’ve gathered together some of what we think are the most significant pros you should seriously consider about being a First Aid Trainer
1. Educate others to save lives
The most obvious point we can highlight here is the fact that in becoming a first aid and defibrillator trainer you are educating people to save lives. You are sharing valuable knowledge with people who may well find themselves in an emergency situation where they have to administer first aid to someone. First aid is an incredibly valuable life skill to learn and passing on this important knowledge is very worthy.
If flexible working is something you require, becoming a trainer is a fantastic means to do this. Essentially this allows you the potential to work as and when you want as you are self-employed.
3. Always needed
First aid is always in demand – learning first aid skills is never going to go out of fashion which means that there will always be demand for people who can teach this subject area.
Becoming a first aid trainer is an accessible career route. If you are aiming to be a first aid trainer within your place of work to teach other members of staff (unaccredited), other than the level 3 First Aid at Work, you do not need any other qualifications to sit this course. However, to be a freelance trainer who teaches at an accredited level you will need either a PGCE qualification or level 3 Education and Training (or the equivalent).
No two days are the same. You can expect a diverse range of people who want to learn first aid. One day you might be training business associates who require this qualification for their line of work and the next day you could expect a group of young people looking to expand their CV.
