First Aid Level 1 – Teaches the basics of effective first aid. This first aid training covers a broad variety of emergency medical subjects/modules. Learners are provided with the theoretical information and practical skills necessary to initiate and apply first aid treatment in the workplace or home environment.  First Aid level 1 is an entry level training course on emergency principles and is accredited through the Department of labour and Health and Welfare Sector Educational Training Authority (HWSETA). In the first aid level 1 course, learners will know how to perform basic life support and first aid in emergencies. 
First Aid Level 2 - Is for those who need to achieve a more advanced level of first aid competency. This first aid training covers the theoretical and practical skills needed in the workplace to meet health and safety standards. Level 2 first aid training is ideal for designated first aiders, health and safety managers and anyone who needs a first aid certificate for their occupational qualification.
First Aid level 3 - This training is designed to assist learners with the emergency protocols that need to be followed to ensure the correct responses given when responding to any emergency situation. This course will enable the learner to take leadership in emergency situations.  More focus is place on serious injuries and illnesses to ensure that employees are equipped to deal with any emergency situation which requires advanced first aid. This will depend on the level of risk employees are exposed to and the type of industry.
