1 Day Emergency First Aid at Work
This course is suitable for those wishing to learn basic first aid, support a qualified first aider and those employed in a low risk working environment with fewer than 50 people.
Where an employer’s assessment of First Aid needs identifies that a First Aider (FAAW trained) is not necessary, the minimum requirement for an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements.
The duration is 6 to 7 hours and will equip delegates with the basic first aid skills to deal with an emergency situation and call for the emergency services.

This course is very practical and will require the participants to demonstrate procedures on the floor. Participants must be fit enough to get themselves on and off the floor in order to access the casualty and demonstrate a level of stamina through the administration of CPR. Everyone is advised to wear practical clothing such as trousers and flat shoes for the duration of the course. Assessment is continuous and the certificate provided lasts for 3 years.
