Why is a first aid training course expensive?
l am looking into doing a first aid course because l am a carer and l feel that it is relevent to what l am doing. My employer does not provide this for anyone except medication training; which is what l have done. l am looking into first aid and they're all around £200 for a 3 day course! ls it worth paying this price at all? ls there a chance of going to a service that provides it cheaper or maybe free? Thank you in advance.
