If your organisation employs more than 50 personnel, then they are required by law to have a minimum of one qualified first aider. Our OFQUAL-accredited First Aid at Work Course is specifically delivered to be in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981. The training is delivered over three days, with delegates being continually assessed and a certificate awarded upon successful completion.
We deliver the FAAW Course both in-house and as an open course, although we typically recommend the in-house option as it cheaper for you and the training can be tailored to suit the specific requirements of your workplace!

How The Course Is Delivered
Our training is available both bespoke, designed in-house and as open courses. Our open courses are ideal for individuals who have been selected as a First Aider, but are better suited to groups of 6 -12 who require training. Our in-house courses will be a much more cost-effective option for you and you won’t even need to travel; we come to you. There will be an element of both Practical and Theory assessments.
