Emergency First aid at work



Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is ideal if your risk assessment has shown a need for an Emergency First Aider in a low risk environment and/or you need an additional First Aider. Many people simply want to complete this course, as it gives them confidence in basic life saving skills and helps enhance their personal development.

The course is run over a one day period or for a minimum of 6 contact hours (plus breaks), involving theoretical and practical activities and is fully recognised by the HSE. Each candidate will receive an Emergency First Aid (EFAW) certificate with a verification number.

Another advantage of training with us, is that students will be given a free First Aid manual and will gain 6 CPD points.

The course covers the primary elements of First Aid and consists of theory learning, followed by practical scenarios that are realistic to situations they may face.
