To become a British Kite Sports Association (BKSA) or British Stand Up Paddleboard Association (BSUPA) qualified instructor, you must hold a valid first aid qualification. This Emergency First Aid at Work course will certify you for 3 years.
Emergency First Aid at Work
The Emergency First Aid at Work course is designed for people who feel that they do not need a full 3 day First Aid at Work course and takes six hours of teaching time.
The course covers a range of topics such as:
- First Aid and the Law
- Incident Management
- Acting safely including prevention of cross-infection
- Recording incidents
- Safe use of First Aid equipment
- Unconscious Casualty management including recovery position
- CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
- AED usage
- Wounds & bleeds including tourniquets and Haemostatic dressings
Assessment is in the form of practical exercises and a straightforward multiple choice paper, and candidates must pass both elements to qualify.
We offer stand alone first aid training that meet the legal requirements for the provision of first aid at work throughout the year. Perfect if you need to refresh your skills but also goes hand in hand with our eight week instructor training courses; setting you up on the right path from the very beginning of your kitesurf instructor career.
