The First Aid At Work (FAW) Training Course is a comprehensive 3-day course that covers a wide range of topics related to first aid. It is designed for individuals who may need to provide first aid in the workplace or in other settings where emergencies can occur.
The course covers topics such as assessing a casualty, CPR, dealing with severe bleeding, choking, shock, fractures, head and spinal injuries, burns and scalds, poisoning, and a range of medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, and more. The FAW course also provides information on how to manage emergency situations, including how to contact emergency services and what to do while waiting for them to arrive.
Who should take this course?
This course is suitable for people and businesses who wish to learn new first aid skills or refresh their existing first aid skills. No previous qualifications are needed to take this course as all the basic first aid techniques are covered throughout the training.
This course is best suited to low hazard workplaces (such as offices, shops and restaurants) where a qualified first aider is not required according to the first aid needs assessment. It's considered best practice for all employees to be provided with first aid knowledge, particularly those who are in charge of first aid arrangements, and this course satisfies that requirement.
The online assessment is taken on completion of the training material. You will be asked 30 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 80%. The answers are marked automatically so you will instantly know whether you have passed.
