This course is suitable for any person who needs to be aware of the diagnosis and treatment of anaphylactic reactions.
What is Anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis is an extreme and severe allergic reaction. The whole body is affected, often within minutes of exposure to the allergen but sometimes after hours. The right Anaphylaxis training can make a huge difference to a person's recovery.
Common causes include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts (e.g. almonds, walnuts, cashews, brazils), sesame, fish, shellfish, dairy products and eggs. Non-food causes include wasp or bee stings, natural latex (rubber), penicillin or any other drug or injection. In some people, exercise can trigger a severe reaction – either on its own or in combination with other factors such as food or drugs (e.g. aspirin).
What are the symptoms?
Successful candidates will be awarded the FRFA Anaphylaxis & EPIPEN Awareness certificate valid for 3 years

Genna Louise, First Aid at Work course
Thank you so much for he First Aid course that Sarah ran for us last Wednesday and the Wednesday before. We all really enjoyed ourselves and Sarah was a great "teacher" making the course really informative and useful but not threatening at the same time ! We have all been on courses where you are frightened to get anything wrong but everyone had nothing but praise for Sarah. Please pass on our thanks to her.
Jo Brown, Paediatric First Aid course
I have completed quite a few first aid courses and this has been the best by far - I will remember lots.
Helena, Level 3 Paediatric First Aid course
Having never taken a first aid course, it really helped me learn about helping someone whether a family member or a stranger. I now know what to do and how to deal with a potential life threatening situation. I thought Brian was fantastic.
