Combined Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work

3 day Combined Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and First Aid at Work (FAW) course



This in house 3 days combined Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work training course complies with the guidelines and criteria as defined by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in respect of the 1981 (First Aid) Regulations. Delegates will learn the skills and knowledge to provide First Aid treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.

The topics covered in this combined Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work training course are in accordance with current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK).


This combined course would be useful where some delegates are required to undertake only the 1 day Emergency First Aid at work course while the other delegates are required to complete the full 3 days First aid at work course. This combined course will avoid the need to arrange two separate courses thereby reducing costs and the time for an extra day of training.




This combined training course is taught for 18 hours over 3 days and consists of theoretical and practical sessions. This 18 hours combined training course can also be spread over a maximum of 10 weeks, ensuring that each session is a minimum of two hours (subject to extra cost).
