The Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work (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. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and 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. This course must be delivered as a 100% classroom course and cannot be delivered via online or blended training to comply with the HSE requirements. Candidates completing our EFAW courses receive access to our video library for refreshing skills and reference.
The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher courses and our online course meets this requirement.
Please note that learners undertaking a ProTrainings Trainings Course have the option to chose to take a regulated qualification.
Please be advised that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 16.
The following syllabus meets the HSE requirements laid down for course content as follows:
