First Aid at Work (FAW) Certificate – 3 days
This course will give learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.
Our 3-day FAW course is suitable for businesses who have identified their first aid needs and require someone to hold a current first aid at work qualification with skills to recognise and treat a wider range of injuries and medical conditions.
Delivered in a classroom setting by experienced instructors, this course offers a practical, hands-on approach that gives the skills and confidence to use in a real life situation. Each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, and activities designed to coach and support them.
The last thing we all need in business is new regulations to get our heads around and the updated First Aid Regulations (1st October 2013) may cause you some concern. HSE have withdrawn their endorsement of First Aid Providers and it is now the responsibility of Employers to choose a Training Provider who can deliver a course suitable for their business and to be able to make that choice based on “due diligence” which means that various standards are maintained and quality is assured and can be evidenced. You need to be sure you have made the right decision and can prove it. Newlands Training Ltd is fully compliant with the new regulations.
