Sorry for this super random question. I came across some first aid courses the other day and was quite interested in getting a first aid certificate. It would surely be nice to list it on one's CV, but I was guessing that it would unlikely to have any impact on one's application for office jobs (such as those within an accountancy firm). Am I right?

I wouldn't really say it'd have any impact on your application in that type of job, no. It'd mostly be useful in jobs where you're public facing or in high-risk environments like building sites. If a job wants you to be first aid trained, they'll sometimes fund you to complete a course.

There's also several different types of first aid courses and they can be quite expensive to complete (several hundred pounds), especially if you're going to have little to no use for them. Sure, it's good to know how to do things such as CPR, but the chances of you needing to use first aid at work or just out and about are quite slim.
