First Aid at Work (FAW)

Course Introduction

This level 3 First Aid at work course (FAW) complies with the current HSE regulations, and is the most popular of our courses. It is the highest level of First Aid training available for the workplace and is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they require a fully trained First Aider for their workplace.

Successful students receive a certificate to show that they are qualified to be a First Aider in the workplace for the next three years. The HSE also recommend that First Aiders complete a refresher course within those three years to keep their skills up to date.

If you already hold a valid in date First Aid at Work certificate then our 2 day re-qualification course may be appropriate.
