First Aid at Work

Our comprehensive First Aid at Work (FAW) course is ideal for most businesses where the risk assessment has identified a requirement for fully-trained first aider/s.  

Colchester First Aid offers this course as a fully accredited RQF qualification or as a ProTrainings CPD certified qualification.  All of these courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in October 2013 and meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work (First Aid) Regulations 1981. 

In order to meet these requirements this course must be run over a minimum of 18 contact hours, over a minimum of three days, (not necessarily consecutive) and the certificate is valid for three years. 

To renew the qualification you can attend a 12 contact-hour two-day FAW requalification course. 

The HSE strongly recommends that all first aiders complete an annual refresher to update skills.   Colchester First Aid provides annual refresher courses for everyone, with a special discounted rate for returning students. 

Students who complete the Colchester First Aid FAW course receive access to the ProTrainings video library for reference and for refreshing skills.  

Certification options available:

  • TQUK Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF)
  • Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (VTQ)

 

Emergency First Aid at Work

Our Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is more suitable for businesses where the risk assessment has identified a requirement for first aid provision, but not necessarily a fully, comprehensively trained first aider. 

This course is offered as either a fully accredited QCF qualification, or as a ProTrainings CPD certified qualification.  Both versions are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the Health and Safety Executive in October 2013 and meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work (First Aid) Regulations 1981. 

In order to meet these regulatory requirements the course must be run over a minimum of six contact hours.  Requalification is required after three years and is achieved by completing a further six hour EFAW course. 

The HSE strongly recommends that all first aiders complete an annual refresher to update skills.  At Colchester First Aid we believe that this is so important that we offer very highly discounted rates for returning students on our open annual refresher courses. 

Colchester First Aid students who complete our EFAW course receive access to the ProTrainings video library for reference and for refreshing skills. 

Certification options available:

  • TQUK Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF)
  • Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (VTQ)
