One or more of our trainers can come to workplace to run any of our workplace first aid course. We deliver training 7 days a week and can adjust the start times to fit with your working day. Outside of the standard workplace first aid courses we can design bespoke training for workplaces with specialised requirements. Our flexible and cost-effective solutions are tailored to your company's needs.

First Aid at Work - 3 days

/media/coursedescriptions/library/faw.jpgThe First Aid at Work course (FAW) is 3 days of training suitable for higher hazard workplaces such as construction sites and factories or workplaces with more than 50 employees.

Certificates are RQF Level 3 and are valid for 3 years. No previous first aid experience is required to attend.

It is strongly recommended by the HSE that candidates undergo an annual refresher in the years before FAW requalification is required in order to keep your skills updated.

We can send a trainer to your workplace, even it it's a building site!

Course Details - First Aid at Work - 3 days

First Aid at Work Requalification - 2 days

/media/coursedescriptions/library/efaw-2.jpgFirst Aid certificates last for 3 years. The two day first aid at work requalification course allows first aid at work qualified staff to re-validate their First Aid at Work certificate for a further 3 years. 

Attendees must have a valid (not out of date by more than 28 days) first aid at work certificate to attend a requalification course.

Do note that once certificates have expired the first aider is no longer considered to be competent to act as a workplace first aider.
