Course Description

If you have identified that first aiders are needed in your workplace, you must ensure that those identified to be first aiders undertake training appropriate to the need of the business.  At Care Learning & Development we have designed various first aid training courses, to suit every workplace.

Our one-day Emergency First Aid at Work meets the requirements specified by the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and is ideal for small to medium-sized organisations and/or low-risk industries, whose first aid needs assessment has identified a requirement for someone to hold a current emergency first aid at work qualification.

Delivered in a classroom setting, our EFAW is the perfect blend of theoretical and practical sessions conducted by one of our instructors. The learner will be assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them.

After this EFAW training, first aider will have gained the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace. However, we also welcome those wanting to increase their confidence that they would know what to do in an emergency.

To ensure that participants get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate, and a maximum of 12 students are allowed.
