The Emergency First Aid at Work Course provides you with a certificate, which meets the requirements outlined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
This is the most common workplace first aid course, which covers all of the major life-threatening scenarios. Low-risk industries should enroll where you are responsible for less than 100 people.
To complete the course there is summative and formative assessment. If successful, each candidate will be awarded a nationally recognised Emergency First Aid at Work certificate with the specialisation noted which is valid for 3 years. Annual refreshers are recommended
