Let us introduce you to First Aid at Work (3 day) training.
Ideal for higher risk businesses and individuals and in accordance with the Health and Safety regulations.
|Our First at Work (3 day) courses are all HSE and Awarding body approved. This qualification has been accredited by the regulators of England, Wales and Northern Ireland (Ofqual, Welsh Government and CCEA) and is part of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). It is supported by Skills for Health, the Sector Skills Council for health.
We provide First Aid courses because we believe that it’s absolutely important to help people in need of aid, so many people die needlessly because no one could give them first aid when they needed it. We believe in the value of First Aid and how it can help save lives, prevent injuries and can make a difference.
We help people become First Aiders everywhere, from people in the workplace to the people in the community.
The difference between Emergency First at Work 1 day and First Aid at Work 3 day course:
|First Aiders with a First aid at work 3 day certificate are required in higher risk sites or places with a large workforce or high perceived level of risk. Emergency First Aid at Work 1 day trained staff are required in lower risk sites or places.|
|The First Aid at Work 3 day course is mandatory for anyone who wishes to complete the SIA Close Protection course. This course is NOT included within the Close Protection course and shown as an option as some individuals already hold the First Aid at Work 3 day qualification and do not need to complete the First Aid at Work training. Please contact us if you require further help in deciding which course is right for you.|
