First Aid at Work Course (FAW) is a three day (18 hour) course. It is aimed at equipping the first aider with a range of skills to deal with emergency situations as well as managing a range of illnesses and injuries. The 3 day course follows the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) Course syllabus for the first day and then expanding on the skills acquired on days 2 and 3. It can help business meet their requirements under the Health and Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981. This course is aimed at higher risk environments but if you are a low risk environment then our 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work Course may be more suitable for you.
