Assessment and Certification
First aid is a highly practical subject which means you’ll get the chance to perform numerous practical activities during the 3 days (CPR, the Recovery Position, etc). Whilst you complete each task, your tutor will assess your capability to make sure that you are performing each technique correctly.
In addition, you’ll sit a multiple-choice question paper.
You must pass both the practical assessment and the question paper to gain your certificate.
After passing, you’ll receive your certificate which is valid for 3 years. When your 3 years is up, a two-day refresher course is available if you wish to continue practicing. Bear in mind, the refresher course requires candidates to have an in-date First Aid at Work certificate.
Highfield Qualifications accredits our First Aid at Work course which, in turn, is regulated by OFQUAL and CCEA.
