First Aid for stage managers working in the Office or on Stage is designed to meet the needs of production staff working in static locations such as studios or theatres, with quick access to emergency help. This media first aid course covers issues raised by mixing with the public and providing emergency care for someone injured or taken ill. Our First Aid  course is highly practical and reflects our training ethos: #trainforreal and first aid training is a contact sport. Your delegates will get plenty of hands on during this course, all aimed at making a more confident first aider.  The course is always adapted to reflect the exact circumstances of the delegates, what first aid kit do they have etc.

The core syllabus of the First Aid in the Office or Studio includes [and exceeds] the HSE recommendations for a workplace first aider.

The core learning outcomes for this course are:
