Reviews

My experience over the 3 day course was excellent Alan was great in the calm methodic and polite the way he passed his knolage to us. Every piece of kit was available for us to practice with, as I am a tradesman I am a hands on person which the course gave every opportunity to do so.

 

Completed the First Aid at Work (FAW) here this week. Learnt so much about First Aid from Katie and Alan over the 3 days. Staff couldn’t be more helpful when any questions were asked and the training provided was first class. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to give First Aid.

 

Easy to deal with to prepare a 1st aid course. Easy to be on the course. Very easy to understand the course content. Enjoyable and relaxed. No problems at all!

Frequently asked questions

Why should my employees attend a first aid training course?

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide first aid equipment, facilities, and people so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work. First-aid assessments of some businesses will find that only an “appointed person” is required – this role does not require training. Other businesses, however, will legally require one or more staff to receive training and gain either the EFAW or FAW qualifications, depending on the outcome of your first aid assessment.

How Long Does A First Aid Training Certificate Last For?

In most cases, first aid certificates last for three years before they need to be renewed, but the HSE recommends a refresher course every year. When you complete your first aid at work training course or an emergency first aid course, you will be awarded a certificate, which will be valid for three years. When it comes time to renew your first aid certificate, you need to take a two day refresher course to get your new certificate. This refresher needs to be completed within 28 days of the expiration date on your previous certificate.

Other types of first aid certificates have different rules about expiry and renewal. For example, a paediatric first aid at work certificate can be renewed every three years but an AED defibrillator certificate is only valid for one year before you need to take a refresher course to renew it.
