Course Aims

To provide delegates with the required level of training, skills and knowledge in First Aid, and comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The First Aid at Work course is run over three days and includes both theory and practical sessions; the course is conducted in a relaxed environment with the focus on building knowledge and confidence.

Suitable For

Any person selected by the employer to be a first aider in the work place, who has the aptitude and ability to absorb new knowledge and skills.

Course Length

3 days*

* Note: This course consists of 18 hours contact time. It is usually run as a 3-day course, although for businesses requiring in-house FAW training,  we are happy to consider other arrangements to suit your business. As an example, a course run over 3 weeks at 1-day per week may be more suitable for you.

Pre-requisites

Temporary physical impairment - In situations where employers inform
training providers that an employee attending an FAW / EFAW course has a
temporary physical impairment, it may be sensible to advise them to defer
training until the individual is fit. If this is not possible and the student
has a temporary physical impairment, affecting for example mobility, a training
provider can temporarily accommodate this during training. For example, a knee
injury may prevent CPR training as the person is unable to kneel on the floor,
so the training could be delivered at waist height. However, the final
assessment must still be conducted at floor level. If you have any queries do contact us for advice.

Certification

Trainees attending our First Aid courses are trained and assessed by expert trainer/assessors throughout the course. Assessment is made through observation along with some written exercises. Successful trainees will be awarded a nationally recognised Certificate of Competence, valid for three years. NVQ Level 3 equivalency.

All trainees will also receive a course manual.
