Qualification Overview

This qualification is based on the HSE training standard for delivery of First Aid at Work courses for the purposes of the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981.

Aim

The aim of the qualification is to enable learners to attain the knowledge and competencies needed to deal with a range of emergency first aid situations. Learners should be able to demonstrate the practical administration of safe, prompt, effective first aid in emergency situations with an understanding of the role of the first aider.

Structure

Initial training:

  • Initial training should be delivered in no less than 18 hours (3 days) excluding breaks.

Requalification training:

  • Requalification training should be delivered in no less than 12 hours (2 days) excluding breaks.

To attend a requalifying course, learners must produce a copy of a First Aid at Work Certificate that is either HSE approved or Ofqual/SQA regulated. This certificate must not have expired by more than 3 months.

On initial and requalification courses, all practical and theoretical assessments must be passed to gain the qualification.

Note – When a first aider’s certificate has expired, that person will not be accepted as a workplace first aider under the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, so employers should be encouraged to requalify their first aiders early.

Intended Audience

The qualification is designed for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide First Aid when dealing with an emergency situation.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements but to benefit from the learning, learners should possess communication skills sufficient to allow them to address the assessment requirements of the qualification.

Requalification Requirements

This QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work is valid for a period of 3 years, within which time the learner will need to re-take the course and the assessments in order to remain qualified.
