A WORD ABOUT THE COURSE,
YOU AND YOUR DATA

Thank you for applying to attend the free training to complete a Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work. All courses will take place at Silsden Town Hall.

Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this national, Ofqual regulated, RQF qualification in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

 

All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide their organisations, families and communities with emergency first aid treatment in a prompt, safe and effective manner.

You may know that the course has been made possible by a generous donation from the Harry Beverley Tillotson Trust.

Entry Requirements

The qualification is available to learners aged 14 or over but a learner is unable to act as a First Aider in the workplace until they reach the age of 16.

Due to the practical nature of the first aid assessment there are some physical demands and learners must be able to demonstrate their skills as in a real-life situation.

An example of this would be to demonstrate CPR on a manikin at floor level.

It is recommended that learners should hold a minimum of Level 1 in literacy or equivalent to undertake this qualification.

It may be possible to allocate a reasonable adjustment to a learner who has a disability, medical condition or learning need; learners should contact their training provider to discuss. 

 

Certification

Practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours
