Description

The ProTrainings Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3 (VTQ) qualification (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained 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 2017 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent 2017 changes.

This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements.  ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) are fully recognised by the HSE as Trade Body Qualifications.

This course must be at least 6 contact hours and run over a minimum of 1 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years.   In May 2016 the HSE and Awarding Organisations announced that computer-based blended training is now allowed for all workplace first aid courses.

You now have the option to complete your Emergency First Aid at Work course as a blended course, with 2 hours of online training followed by 4 hours in the classroom. Our blended training allows you to learn the theory at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you.

This blended EFAW course meets all of the requirements of the HSE and Awarding Organisations and is available as a ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification.

To renew you need to attend another EFAW 6 hour course or blended course when annual first aid refresher course in the classroom.

The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher course and our online course meets this requirement.

Please note that learners undertaking a ProTrainings Trainings Course have the option to choose to take a regulated qualification.

Please be advised that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 14.

This qualification and most of the other ProTrainings qualifications are Endorsed by TQUK to show our commitment to extra levels of compliance and quality assurance.
