Appointed Person Course Description

Where an employer’s Risk Assessment of First Aid Needs (RAOFAN) identifies that a First Aider or Emergency First Aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement on an employer is to appoint a person (Appointed Person) to take charge of the First Aid arrangements, including looking after equipment and facilities, and calling the emergency services when required. This was effective from 1st October 2009.


Two hours of theoretical training with no practical training.

A range of subjects are covered including:-

• Legislation

Age Limit

Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate of attendance can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot claim the official title of ‘Appointed Person’ until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
