First Aid Training Courses
We understand that such workplaces are subject to a wider range of risks and our expert trainers are ready to help you fully understand your roles and responsibilities as a designated first-aider in a higher-risk workplace.
Your First Aid Training courses will be prepared according to your organisation’s individual risk assessment and will offer a highly practical, hands-on approach. Course content will take place over three days and will include how to handle injuries and emergencies, such as managing catastrophic bleeding or choking, looking after an unresponsive patient and administering CPR. You will also learn how to record accidents and incidents of ill health or medical emergencies, and how and when to notify the authorities of illnesses or disease outbreaks at work.
Our course covers the content specified by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

First Aid at Work Course Assessments
The First Aid at Work Training Course is assessed in 2 parts.
1. Continuous assessment
This is where your class trainer will observe your class participation to ensure your knowledge is at the required level.
2. Written assessments
Written assessments can vary for the FAW Course depending on your training provider. Typically, these exams are for each of the core unit areas and will be multiple choice. They can either fall at the end of the course, on the final day, or be spread out.
Who Should Take This Workplace First Aid Course?
This First Aid at work course is suitable for people and businesses who wish to learn new first aid skills or refresh their existing first aid skills. No previous qualifications are needed to take this course as all the basic first aid techniques are covered throughout the training.
This course is best suited to low risk workplaces (such as offices, shops and restaurants) where a qualified first aider is not required according to the first aid risk assessment. It’s considered best practice for all employees to be provided with first aid knowledge, particularly those who are in charge of first aid arrangements, and this course satisfies that requirement.
