This First Aid at Work Qualification is delivered with a three day course, requiring 18 contact hours in the classroom between learner and tutor.
Successful completion of the course assessment certifies the learner as a First Aider who has an understanding of managing major illness and injury. Qualified First Aiders support business compliance with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
The in-depth content makes it ideal for medium and higher risk environments and for managing First Aid in the workplace. Your company risk assessment should identify your First Aid requirements and outline the type and number of First Aiders required, to support workplace safety.
For further guidance, look at the HSE’s recommendations. If you are looking for a basic first aid awareness course, please consider our 1-day Emergency First Aid course.

First Aid at Work Course Assessment
First Aid is a highly practical subject which means you will be performing numerous practical activities during the 3 days (practicing techniques including CPR, the Recovery Position, etc).
Your tutor will assess your capability on each technique during these practical exercises. At the end of the course there is also a multiple-choice question exam paper to complete to demonstrate theoretical knowledge.
You must pass both the practical assessment and the question paper to achieve qualification.
