Course Introduction

If you are undertaking the 1 Day EFAW course or the 3 Day FAW course the HSE (The Regulator) & the HSEA (our approval body) strongly recommend that each year of the lifetime of the 3 year certificate for both courses that you undertake a 3hr Basic Skills Update Course.

The course is normally run over 3 consecutive hours.

Tutor was very good, talked very nicely and very professional, thanks for the course – Scunthorpe 2022

Additional Information

Candidates are issued with a Basic Skills Update Certificate (BSU) for their own personal Portfolios to indicate that they have attended an update session and to act as evidence of additional training as indicated in the ACOP of the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

NOTE TO EMPLOYERS: Please realise that it is insufficient to send your candidates on a First Aid course and then forget about their training for 3 years. Under the ACOP of the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations, employers have a duty to ensure that First Aiders receive additional First Aid training to maintain both their confidence and competence in life saving procedures.

The BSU course fulfills this requirement and the course is “strongly recommended” by both the HSE and the HSEA

For on site courses our minimum charge is based on 6 candidates attending i.e. on your site. Cost is £50 x 4 plus VAT

This course can also be undertaken online for those already holding a current, in date, certificate.

The price also includes the cost of the course Handbook

During the course you will find yourself in a friendly environment where rather than be spoken at you will be involved in a discussion-style environment that lends itself just as much to what the Instructor can tell you as to what knowledge and life experiences you bring to the course as well.

With 0ver 30 Years of experience – you’re in the safest of hands.

PFE have done away with the starched regimented approach to First Aid Instruction and instead provide a happy meaningful environment where “shared” learning and experiences can come together to underpin the factual knowledge required to become a First Aider.

Each tutor and assessor is individually assessed and evaluated in terms of their delivery by you the candidate, so while we are running courses all over the UK you will be our eyes and ears into assisting us with our quality control delivery.
