First aid at work
INTRODUCTION – FIRST AID AT WORK (FAW)
The First Aid at Work qualification (FAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they require 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 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981.
This course must be at least 18 contact hours (plus breaks) and run over a minimum of 3 days and the certificate is valid for 3 years. To renew the qualification, you may complete a 12-hour/2-day FAW requalification course (with an in-date FAW certificate), or an 18-hour FAW course if your certificate has lapsed.
