Course Description

The Emergency First Aid Course has been approved by the Health and Safety Executive since October 2009. It was implemented mainly for workplaces that required their first aiders to be trained to a nationally recognised level without having to complete 3 Day First Aid at Work course. That said this is a detailed course but should more comprehensive training be required then the First Aid at Work course should be completed. We run very regular courses at our training centres or as is proving very common we can provide this vital training to you and your staff at your workplace.

This course is designed to meet the first aid requirements of a low risk working environment such as offices, shops, food outlets etc. This means although the course is comprehensive it may not be suitable for high risk workplaces and a full First Aid at Work training course may be more appropriate.

The course can be assessed as an OfQual Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work course or as a 1st Choice certificated course.

The certification will allow you be to be a nominated first aider in your workplace.
