This course is excellent for anyone who wishes to learn emergency first aid life saving skills.
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 Award 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 the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
A range of subjects are covered including:
Responsibilities and reporting
Assessment of the situation
Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
Basic hygiene in First Aid
Resuscitation, Basic Life Support and Awareness of AED
Assessment & Certification
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day.
A three year Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.
A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
