(4 customer reviews)

£80.00

(Level 3 award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF) / Award in Emergency First Aid at Work SCQF at Level 6)

Where a first aid needs assessment identifies the necessity for an emergency first aider in the workplace, this 1-day qualification provides the learner with the knowledge and practical competence required to deal with a wide range of workplace first aid situations.  The qualification is also suitable for other settings such as voluntary and community groups.  For larger or higher risk environments we recommend the three-day First aid at work qualification.

Our Emergency First Aid at Work Course covers the following subjects:

  • Roles and Responsibilities of the First Aider
  • Reporting
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Resuscitation and Defibrillator (AED) awareness
  • Burns
  • Anatomy
  • Choking
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Minor injuries
  • Epilepsy
  • Infection prevention
  • Bleeding control
  • Shock


Certification

Practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor and a three-year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.

This qualification is regulated in the UK and awarded by First Aid Awards (FAA).

FAA are an awarding organisation regulated by Ofqual and SQA Accreditation.  The qualification sits on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).  The qualification is delivered, assessed, and quality assured adhering to the Assessment Principles for Regulated First Aid Qualifications, and delivered and assessed in accordance with the current Resuscitation Council UK Guidelines.

 

Entry Requirements

The qualification is suitable for learners aged 16+ and it is recommended that learners hold a minimum of level 1 in literacy or equivalent to undertake the course.

Due to the practical nature of the first aid assessment there are physical demands. Learners must be able to get to the floor unaided and successfully demonstrate all required elements of the practical assessment on their own, with the casualty on the floor, as in a real-life situation. For example, a learner will need to get to the floor unassisted and demonstrate effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a manikin at floor level. If a learner has any concerns they should contact us before attending the course.

 

Qualification Assessment

The qualification is assessed through practical demonstration.

There is no grading of the assessment, learners pass or are referred.

 

Practical assessment

Scenarios are set recreating a real-life situation as far as possible to enable a learner to demonstrate their knowledge and practical skills. During the practical assessment the learner will be asked set related oral questions by the trainer/assessor.  The practical assessment is ongoing throughout the course with the trainer/assessor making learners aware of when they are being assessed and what they are required to demonstrate.  A learner must satisfactorily complete each scenario to pass the practical assessment.
