Please ensure you are free of any condition that will prohibit you from participating fully during the practical aspects of this emergency first aid at work course.

Renewing our Qualification

If you wish to renew your Emergency First Aid at Work certificate you will need to resit the course every three years.

Since the 1st October 2013 the Health and Safety Executive is not required to formally approve first aid training and qualifications for the workplace. The law still states that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and personnel to provide assistance to injured or ill colleagues, and provide trained first aiders based on their own needs assessment, this has not changed. The HSE will still ensure a standard of first aid training for the workplace is maintained.

A First Aid Training Provider You Can Trust

You must ensure that where your needs assessment indicates you need first aiders, they receive training that will teach them the necessary first aid skills and leave them feeling confident that they could respond to an emergency. To guarantee this, you should pick a training provider you can trust.
