First Aid at Work
QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF)
This Ofqual Regulated Qualification is specifically designed for individuals who wish to act as a first aider in their workplace. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid.
What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes.

The certificate is valid for 3 years. A shorter requalification course can be done within one month of expiry to regain the qualification, otherwise the full course must be done to requalify.
The training is normally done over 3 days (18 hours), though these days do not have to be together. There are flexible options for splitting up the 18 hours if desired.
