3 Day FAW

The 3 day first aid at work course is for employees who have been chosen to be the company first aider.  This course will help the company meet their duties laid out in section 3(2) of the Health and Safety First Aid Regulations 1981.

In January 2018 there were some changes in first aid certification but do not worry as First Aid Box is already approved to deliver the new RQF 3 day level 3 First Aid at Work course at our Peterborough academy or at a venue of your choosing.

The course itself is an on going assessment with no end test.  This again is proven to help candidates relax during the course and absorb more information.  Throughout the training the instructor will demonstrate each section of the course and then the candidates will be expected to complete the task to the required standards.

Throughout the 3 day first aid training course the candidates will be expected to complete a theory question paper to ensure learning has taken place.  With prior notice the question paper can be given verbally should a candidate have learning or language difficulties.

Once your 3 day first aid training has been completed you will receive an email first aid book that will keep you updated for the 3 years your qualification is valid.  You will also be given the chance to subscribe to video refreshers that will be sent to you over the 3 years to remind you of how to carry out certain aspects of first aid.

Should you need anymore information or if you wish to book a course then please call us or email us.

Throughout the 3 day first aid training course the candidates will be expected to complete a theory question paper to ensure learning has taken place.
