The First Aid at Work qualification, which conforms with HSE guidance, provides a comprehensive set of practical skills needed by first aiders in most workplaces, giving both the ability and knowledge to deal with first aid emergencies. The qualification meets the requirements for training first-aiders in those organisations that have identified that staff need to be trained to this level within their first-aid needs assessment.

The qualification covers knowledge such as the roles and responsibilities of the first aider, how to assess an incident and recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness. The qualification also covers first aid skills in CPR and use of an AED and assisting a casualty who is suffering from major injury and illness such as chest injuries, spinal injuries, anaphylaxis and correct use of auto-injectors.

In line with guidance provided by the HSE, the qualification supports/approves workplace first aiders for a period of 3 years, after which point delegates will need to retake the course. Therefore, the qualification is valid for 3 years from the date of award. In addition to this, it is recommended that delegates refresh their knowledge annually.
