First Aid at Work

Course Details

The First Aid at Work Level 3 qualification (FAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they require a fully trained first aider for their workplace. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent 2016 changes.

This is a three day (18 hour) course normally delivered over consecutive days and it meets the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive for First Aid at Work (FAW). All participants will receive a three year certificate on successful completion of the course. The certificate is issued by TQUK and is a Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF). We are a registered Protrainings Centre and the course material and instructors are thoroughly quality assured. A download of a up-to-date first aid manual is included as part of the course fee. You also have access to videos and First Aid updates through email between courses to help keep your skills refreshed. You will also be sent a reminder before your certificate expires and an invitation to renew.

We will run a course for your group or company and depending on the numbers involved this may be at a discount. We can also run courses at your premises but the area or room must be suitable. If you are interested in this option please contact us by email or phone.
