About The Course

Certificate in Concussion and Brain injury Awareness

How staff respond to any type of concussion injury can help to reduce the impact of any long-lasting effects or life-threatening complications. Staff should be able to understand the nature and impact of concussion and brain injuries and have the skillset to be able to deliver a well-planned response to aid future recovery.

Delivered by qualified emergency ambulance medic, Samantha Kendall, this Essential CPD course on brain injury awareness provides you with the knowledge and skills to take immediate and effective action in the event of a concussion injury or medical emergency.

Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
