About this course

The First Aid at Work course (FAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they require a fully trained first aider for their workplace. This course is available as a ProTrainings CPD certified qualification, all courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 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.

This course must be at least 20 contact hours and run over a minimum of 3 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years. To renew you need to attend a 12 contact hour 2 day FAW re qualification course. Candidates completing our FAW courses receive access to our video library for refreshing skills and reference

You can now renew your First Aid at Work qualification, with one day of classroom training after completing this online course. Reduce your training and travel costs by using our engaging, blended online video-based course. Learn at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you.

This blended FAW Requalification course meets all of the requirements under the HSE and Awarding Organisations and is available as a ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification.

If you prefer the traditional 2 days First Aid at Work Requalification course, we can do that too, just contact us for more information.

We also offer a basic one day course for those who do not need the qualification for teaching or professional reasons called Basic Equestrian First Aid.
