Emergency First Aid at Work

The  Emergency First Aid at Work qualification (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace.

All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2017 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent 2016 changes.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.  Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) are fully recognised by the HSE as Trade Body Qualifications.

   SCQF  Scotland.                                  This qualification has been accredited by SQA Accreditation and may be eligible for public funding. Each unit within the qualification and the qualification itself will have a unique reference number which is listed in this specification. The qualification title and unit reference numbers will appear on the learners’ final certification document.


We also offer the option to complete your Emergency First Aid at Work course as a blended course. This entails 2 hours of online training followed by 4 hours in the classroom. Our blended training allows you to learn the theory at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you
