The quick answer is yes. Advance Training Academy welcomes anyone 18 or older to enroll in our level 3 first aid courses, regardless of experience. Read on to learn more about these courses’ content, usefulness, and accessibility.

Many employers and industries require staff to hold a level 3 first aid qualification. Common examples include:

  • Construction crews

  • Treating wounds, burns, fractures
  • Managing medical emergencies – strokes, seizures, anaphylaxis
  • Understanding legal issues around first aid

What Does Level 3 First Aid Training Cover?

Our 2-day classroom course delivers intensely practical instruction across core topics:

Why Is Advanced Training Essential?

Level 3 first aid goes far beyond basic skills like bandages and CPR. It prepares you to manage critical, life-threatening situations using specialized techniques and equipment.

For example, level 3 first aiders learn to:

  • Correctly administer oxygen to those struggling to breathe
  • Use a defibrillator (AED) to attempt revival of cardiac arrest victims
  • Immobilize suspected spinal injuries to avoid paralysis
  • Provide immediate care for heart attacks, strokes, seizures, anaphylaxis, and more

Such advanced interventions can dramatically impact patient survival and recovery. They require proper training, however, to avoid further harm.

That’s why level 3 focuses extensively on realistic emergency simulations. Mastering these advanced skills builds the competence and confidence to respond appropriately when lives hang in the balance.
