First Aid at Work Course (FAW)

This comprehensive, HSE approved, 3 day first aid at work course is for people intending to act as a First Aider at Work. The course is designed to provide the First Aider with the skills necessary to give effective life support, diagnose and treat injuries or illness, and maintain care and comfort of the casualty. With an emphasis on dealing with life threatening situations and keeping the casualty alive until professional help arrives.


Our Tutors teach innovative dynamic courses, which are packed with activities that aid learning; the subjects relate to real life situations, which enhance and enable learners to gain the vital skills and knowledge that they require.  As a result they will be able to deal confidently and competently with a wide range of first aid situations that could arise in your workplace.

Assessment and Certification

All students undertake a formal assessment at the end of the course.

First Aid at Work certificates are valid for three years. We send out an automatic reminder three months prior to the expiry date of the certificate. Certificates can be renewed by attending a 2 day First Aid at Work Re-qualification Course.

The HSE now recommend that all first aiders attend a 3 hour Annual First Aid Refresher course, to ensure that they do not lose their skills over the 3 years.
