EMERGENCY FIRST AID AT WORK COURSE
TRAINING FOR THE FIRST AIDER IN A LOW HAZARD WORKPLACE.
This Emergency First Aid At Work course is a lifesaver course, giving participants essential lifesaving emergency techniques. The 6-hour course covers dealing with incidents, calling for help, treatment of the unconscious casualty, CPR techniques, dealing with bleeding, contents of a first aid kit and medical emergencies.
With the withdrawal of the Health and Safety Executive from the approval of first aid training we feel it is in our clients best interest to have an accredited award, thus we shall be delivering all First aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work qualifications through our Awarding Body, Association of First Aiders Qualifications.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO BE REASSESSED TO KEEP MY TRAINING VALID?
With the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, there is a requirement to be retrained every 3 years. Additionally, the Health and Safety Executive ‘highly recommend’ that first aiders undergo an annual 3-hour refresher course.
