A one - day, 7 hour course
Our course is delivered by an instructor who is either currently serving with the emergency services or someone who has previous front line experience. The training you receive is the same as that received by emergency services personnel - it doesn't get any more authentic.
The DFA course will teach you the skills to manage yourself within the scene at a road traffic collision (RTC) and to deliver potentially lifesaving first aid.
There are lots of practical elements and it is very much a hands - on experience. You don't need any prior subject knowledge but you will leave with the confidence to use your newly gained skills.
If you are a professional truck, bus or coach driver, the course will also count towards your Driver CPC Periodic Training.
In addition to being approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT), the course is also accredited by NCFE.
On completion of the training you will become a member of DFA and receive the DFA Toolkit which provides all of the equipment you will need to successfully assist at the scene of an RTC.
