Course description

First Aid at Work

Depending on your organisation’s size and type, you will need to send a few of your nominated staff for First Aid at Work training. If you have a team who has previously attended a first aid course in Liverpool, you could sign them up for a refresher to renew their certificate and update their skills. These courses arm select members of your team the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out first aid duties in the event an accident in the workplace.

A workplace first aid risk assessment identifies the need for a First Aider in your workplace. Know-How Training Ltd offers three-day courses that allow you to meet the requirements set by the 1981 Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations and the 1982 Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland).

The three-day First Aid at Work training, while comprehensive, will not qualify you to become a doctor, nurse or a paramedic. It will, however, provide you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to save a life as a certified First Aider.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This qualification is available to candidates 14 years old or older, but they may be unable to act as a First Aider in a workplace until they have reached the age of 16.

It is recommended that candidates hold a literacy of First Aid at Work Level 1 or an equivalent of, at a minimum.

Due to the practical nature of the first aid, there will be assessments that gauge a candidate’s skill and their ability to respond to physical demands in a real-life situation. An example would be to do CPR on a mannequin.

It may be possible to create a reasonable adjustment to candidates with a medical condition, disability or learning need. Interested applicants may contact us to discuss.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion, candidates will be awarded a First Aid at Work Level 3 certificate by First Aid Awards (FAA), regulated by Of qual and SQA Accreditation. Our qualifications align with the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
