Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3 (VTQ) - Online Blended Part 1 at a Glance

This option is a part 1 of the full 6 hour EFAW qualification. To complete this part 1 course, you must make sure you have made arrangements to book and complete the part 2 directly with the company or instructor. If you have not done so already, you will need to find your nearest instructor using www.procourses.co.uk. Please note, this may incur an additional fee directly with the instructor (buying the online part 1 and then paying for the classroom part 2).

The ProTrainings Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3 (VTQ) qualification (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2017 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent 2017 changes.

This course must be at least 6 contact hours and run over a minimum of 1 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years.   In May 2016 the HSE and Awarding Organisations announced that computer-based blended training is now allowed for all workplace first aid courses.

You now have the option to complete your Emergency First Aid at Work course as a blended course, with 2 hours of online training followed by 4 hours in the classroom. Our blended training allows you to learn the theory at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you.

This blended EFAW course meets all of the requirements of the HSE and Awarding Organisations and is available as a ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification.
