TQUK Level 3 award in First Aid at Work (RQF) – FAW (3 day)
This is a (18 hour) 3 Day Course and is suitable for people aged 16+ who work in medium hazard environments (for example an office, shop, care home, warehouse or restaurant) or where Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines indicate staff should hold a certificate in first aid at work. This regulated qualification is ideal for those already working or preparing to work within industry wishing to become a First Aider in the workplace for the purposes of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations (NI) 1982.
The recommended course duration is 3 days and topics covered include: the roles and responsibilities of the First Aider; assessing an incident, recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness, assisting a casualty who is suffering from major injury and illness, chest injuries, spinal injuries and anaphylaxis.
The qualification is assessed via on-going oral and/or written questioning and practical demonstration. All successful students will be issued with a First Aid at Work Certificate, detailing their achievement. The HSE dictate, that to be valid in the workplace, learners must retake the First Aid at Work qualification before the expiry of 3 years from the date that the original qualification was achieved.
If no more than one calendar month over this 3 year period, you may qualify to take the course again in two days rather than three. We call this our ‘requalification’ course.
You must give a copy of our original certificate to your instructor to qualify. The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher courses and our online course meets this requirement. All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements. Course Cost: £150.00 pp.
We are competitively priced inclusive of VAT and our Training Hub is conveniently located with ample free parking.
