Yes and No. Some first aid courses are un-regulated and do not have to conform to any specific standards. However, many people feel more comfortable choosing a first aid training provider that is a member of an industry body or that supplies training through an OFQUAL regulated body such as Qualsafe Awards.
When searching for a first aid training provider it is important to do your due diligence before committing time and money to getting your first aid certificate. Questions that are worth asking include:
What the course covers?
What type of first aid certificate will I get?
What are the qualifications of the trainer?
How long will it take to get the certificate?
Does the first aid training provider have honest reviews on independent review sites such as Trustpilot.
