First Aid at Work Course Details

The First Aid Training, also known as FAW, is an extensive level 3 training course which is part of obtaining the First Aid at Work Certificate. 

The course prepares you to provide treatment and handle emergency situations where an individual falls ill or injures themselves. As part of the training, you will also learn how to operate specialist equipment such as a defibrillator. 

The severity of many accidents in the workplace can be reduced by the appointment of a qualified nominee who is capable of taking charge if an injury or illness occurs. We believe everyone should learn basic First Aid techniques as they may come in handy at home, at work and beyond.

The course is also an ideal introduction to First Aid for anyone who is a Door SupervisionSecurity Guard or in a managerial role.


The First Aid At Work Certificate is valid for 3 years and is issued by your First Aid training provider. The course is in compliance with the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Health and Safety Regulations of 1981 outline that it is an employer's responsibility to ensure staff have access to "adequate" first aid treatment. Having Certified First Aiders can satisfy this criteria and make a workplace safer for everyone.
