With the First Aid at Work Qualification, First Aiders are entitled to act within the remit of the First Aid at Work syllabus, as First Aiders in the workplace setting. Their qualification is approved by Health & Safety Education Approvals (HSEA) under the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
The course is normally run over 3 consecutive days but the course syllabus is flexible and can be split over any number of hours, days, evenings, weekends in order to complete the syllabus. The main consideration to remember is that the course consists of 18 hours including assessments and once the course has started irrespective of the chosen format of attendance, candidates have up to a maximum of 9 weeks to complete the course. The shortest taught period cannot be less than 2hrs.
