The EFAW course is ideal for most businesses to train staff as first aiders in the workplace. The course covers primary care skills as laid down by the HSE and Ofqual. The certificate is valid for 3 years and to renew you need to attend another EFAW course. It meets the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981.
The content of this and all our Protrainings EU Ltd courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
This course is also available as a QCF course, meeting the requirements of Ofqual. The employer has the choice of a standard ProTrainings certificate or a QCF certificate. Both are acceptable, have the same content, and meet the same learning outcomes. QCF level courses are usually needed where funding is required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose the QCF course, there are additional assessment criteria to be done with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
