Our Blended First Aid at Work course combines 2 Days of hands-on training with 6 hours of eLearning at home or work.
Prior to the practical day, you will complete our web-based, interactive, and user-friendly eLearning module. Learners can access the module as many times as they need to using a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.
The face-to-face training day lasts 2 days and is designed to maximise recall and provide learners with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to act effectively in first aid emergencies.
Why undertake blended learning?
Online blended learning allows the learner to undertake small modules during any downtime they have at work which reduces their classroom based training to 2 days, meaning less time off work which is more efficient for employers.
Our First Aid at Work Course runs from 9:00 – 16:00.
The FAW training syllabus covers some important general first aid topics, including:
- What are the roles and responsibilities of the first aider?
- How should incidents be recorded and reported using a Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) form?
- What should a first aid kit contain?
- In a first aid emergency, how should you assess the situation and respond?
For group bookings, we can deliver this course on site at your venue.

First Aid at Work Certificate
Our first aid at work certificate is accredited by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB), so you can rest assured you and your team are in good hands.
First Aid at Work Qualification
The first aid at work qualifications required in the workplace will depend entirely on the level of risks your team encounters. Most office-based businesses, for instance, may not require more than EFAW qualifications. A high-risk environment, such as the construction sector, will benefit from FAW training.
Participants are assessed during the session and can receive their qualifications at the end of the training as long as they can demonstrate what they have learnt.
There are no requirements for this first aid at work course.
