The one-day Emergency First Aid at Work qualification will teach you how to deal with emergency situations and administer general first aid treatment, and is designed for people who appointed as a designated first aider in the workplace.
The course is ideal for those that are required to hold a first aid qualification but don’t require the more comprehensive First Aid at Work qualification, and covers all the main workplace first aid situations you may need to deal with, including: managing an unresponsive casualty, CPR, choking, shock, bleeding and wounds, along with other minor injuries.
How Will the Qualification Benefit You?
- Created by STA’s first aid experts, providing you with quality training
- Regulated by Ofqual and Qualifications Wales, and accredited by SQA Accreditation in Scotland
- Training is in accordance with the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982
- Endorsed by CIMSPA, industry leaders in sport and physical activity
- Will give you the knowledge and confidence to deal with emergency situations, potentially saving someone’s life
- It’s a perfect starting block to see if first aid responsibilities are for you.
When You Get Your Qualification
- It lasts for three years
- Your course manual will act as a guide throughout the duration of your qualification, so it’s always there to refer back to should you ever need it.
How to Take Your Qualification Further
The Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is a perfect starting point for someone interested in first aid and the responsibilities of holding a qualification. You might find that you wish to move on and complete the more comprehensive three-day First Aid at Work qualification, which could lead to you becoming the main responsible person in your workplace (and much more!).
