The Emergency First Aid at Work course (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace.
This course is available as a fully accredited Ofqual, RQF, SCQF qualification or as a CPD certified qualification. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and Resuscitation Council update 2015. In addition, all courses meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981.
This course must be at least 6 contact hours and run over a minimum of 1 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years.
To renew you need to attend another EFAW 6-hour course. Candidates completing our EFAW courses receive a full colour First Aid manual and A4 wall certificate.
The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher course and our online course meets this requirement.
