First Aid Training in Deeside, North Wales & Cheshire
ONLINE FIRST AID TRAINING
BEWARE – Fully online first aid courses do not meet HSE requirements for first aid training provision. This is because fully compliant first aid training courses must contain practical assessed elements, such as CPR.
First Aid at Work (FAW) £190+VAT
This is the full, industry standard, First Aid at Work Training (FAW) course. Traditionally this is a three day, face to face course. However, we complete it via blended learning – 1 day online at your own convenience / 2 days in the classroom.
This is the First Aid at Work course you will need to book if your workplace, environment, event, etc. is classified as high risk, e.g. hot work, manufacturing, construction sites, or sites with mobile plants.
Schools, hotels and care homes, etc. can also fall into the high risk category depending on the number of attendees / employees / residents it has. You may also need this course if your organisation has identified that there is a requirement for additional first aid training e.g. having employees with a disability or a medical condition.
The First Aid at Work qualification is valid for 3 years. The HSE and ourselves recommend an Annual First Aid Refresher course to keep your skills fresh and up to date.
Emergency First Aid at Work £80+VAT
This is the industry standard, Emergency First Aid at Work Training (EFAW) course. Sometimes it’s referred to as the 1 day first aid course. Ideal course for your ‘Appointed Person’
This is the EFAW course you will need to book if your workplace, environment, event, etc. is classified as low risk, with less than 25 people e.g. a small office. It will give delegates (your nominated first aider) the confidence and ability to deal with emergency first aid situations.
If you are booking this course for a large number of delegates, then it may be more cost effective for us to come to your site.
We also recommend you share your first aid risk assessment with us. This enables us to add a bespoke element to the standard course with other potential emergencies that you are likely to encounter.
EFAW is valid for 3 years. The HSE and ourselves recommend an Annual First Aid Refresher course to keep your skills fresh and up to date.
First Aid Annual Refresher £50+VAT
As an employer, you are legally obliged to ensure that your first aiders are competent and maintain their skills throughout the three year certification period in which their certificates are valid for.
Therefore, this course is the ideal choice for people who currently hold a valid First Aid at Work (FAW) training (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work Training (EFAW) qualification to ensure their skills are up to date.
The 1/2 day training course helps build a first aiders confidence and strengthens their experience.
Any updates in the first aid field are also covered in the course.
Candidates also have the opportunity to ask our trainers questions that may have arisen since their initial training, potentially, as a result of being involved in a first aid incident.
However, this first aid refresher course does not renew first aid certificates, or extend their validity period. It’s purely there to keep a first aiders essential skills and confidence up to date.
First Aid Requalification Course £120+VAT
Certificates for the purposes of first aid, (First aid at Work) last for three years. At which point the first aid certificate expires.
Therefore, a first-aider will need to complete a first aid requalification course as appropriate, to obtain another three-year certificate.
This is the full, industry standard, First Aid at Work (FAW) Requalification course.
It is delivered as a 2 day blended learning course. The equivalent to 1 day will be undertaken by the candidate completing an online module while the other 1 day will be in a classroom setting, face-to-face.
You must already hold a valid First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work Requalification certificate to be allowed onto this course.
On successful completion of the course, your FAW certificate is extended for another 3 years.
The HSE and ourselves recommend an Annual First Aid Refresher course to keep your skills fresh.
