HFI Group First Aid & CPR training course

HFI group

First Aid Certification is essential for all fitness instructors and personal trainers, both for public liability insurance purposes and for piece of mind.

All personal trainers and fitness / gym instructors require a valid First Aid / Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) qualification BEFORE they practice their skills with clients in a health club, leisure centre or at the clients home.

This must be a valid qualification approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Personal trainers and fitness / gym instructors should maintain this qualification to maximise the safety of your clients and to maintain your public liability insurance.

HFI Group First Aid certification

The HFI Group First Aid courses and the certificate you receive are approved by the HSE and the certificate is valid for 3 years.

The First Aid courses are specifically designed for fitness and gym instructors and personal trainers to maximise learning and be 100% applicable to first aid within an exercise environment.

WARNING: If you do not have a current approved First Aid certificate and you are working as a fitness consultant or personal trainer, you must acquire one immediately.
