The First Aid at Work Level 3 qualification (FAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they will require a fully training First Aider for their workplace. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and subsequent 2016 changes. All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.
This course must be at least 18 contact hours and run over a minimum of 3 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years. To renew you need to attend a 12 contact hour 2 day FAW Re-qualification course.
In May 2016 the HSE and Awarding Organisations announced that computer based blended training is now allowed for all workplace first aid courses. You can now become a fully qualified First Aider in the workplace, with two days of classroom training after completing this online course. Reduce your training and travel costs by using our engaging, blended online video based course. Learn at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you.
This blended FAW course meets all of the requirements under the HSE and Awarding Organisations and is available as a ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification.
The HSE strongly recommend that all First Aiders complete an annual first aid refresher courses and our online course meets this requirement.
