Choosing between a Level 2 and Level 3 First Aid Qualification
Choosing between any Level 2 or Level 3 course can be challenging, particularly where you are not limited by any pre-qualifications you may have.
Of course, Level 3 is a higher level course that, in effect, will help you become further qualified, while a Level 2 course may be enough for the level of first aid you need.
First Aid Courses for Work
Sometimes it’s unclear which qualification is best suited to a specific place of work, and deciding how much money to spend on a higher level of first aid can be challenging, as well as thinking about the outcome and what you will be qualified to do.
