6 Hours (+ 12 Hours)
What is this qualification about?
Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements and the 3-day First Aid at Work (FAW) qualification is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose.
What does this qualification cover?
The first part of this qualification covers the content of the ITC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work course (EFAW). A further 12 hours content for FAW includes: administering first aid to a casualty with injuries to bones, muscles and joints, including suspected spinal injuries; chest injuries; burns and scalds; eye injuries; sudden poisoning; anaphylactic shock; and recognising the presence of major illness and provide appropriate first aid (including heart attack, stroke, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes).
Who is it suitable for?
Any suitable employee identified as a result of the workplace risk assessment. No previous experience is required.
What is the duration of the course?
All candidates must attend the full 18-hours contact time in order to fulfil the qualification ‘license to practice’ requirement.
How is it assessed?
As well as full attendance each candidate is continually assessed on each section of the programme.
The first 6-hours content of the course will cover the EFAW revalidation. The full First Aid at Work qualification is revalidated by completing a 12-hour Revalidation First Aid at Work (FAWR) course, providing the FAW certificate is within its valid lifetime.
