First Aid at Work

Level 3 Award (RQF)

First Aid at Work (RQF)

Over a 3 day period, Learners will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of first aid situations, including: assessing an incident, managing an unresponsive casualty, CPR, heart attacks, choking, head and spinal injuries, fractures, anaphylaxis and more.

What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes.

Once qualified, holders of this First Aid at Work certificate can be used as First Aider's in the workplace in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. All of our courses are bespoke and will be adapted to suit a particular audience and environment, for example, clerical or engineering staff. The First Aid at Work course is run over three days and includes both theory and practical sessions. By arrangement the course can be run on non-consecutive days, for example - one day a week over three weeks.
