Our Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) is the latest new qualification for those wishing to become an Emergency First Aider in the workplace for the purposes of the HSE Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
Topics covered include: the roles and responsibilities of the Emergency First Aider, assessing an incident, recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness and assisting a casualty who is suffering from injury and illness. The qualification is assessed via on-going oral questioning and practical demonstration.
All successful students will be issued with an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their qualification which is valid for a period of 3 years.
