This qualification is based on the HSE training standard for delivery of First Aid at Work courses for the purposes

1.1 Aim of Qualification

The aim of the qualification is to enable learners to attain the knowledge and competencies needed to deal with

*Minimum contact teaching hours apply to this qualification - to comply with HSE/Skills for Health

guidance the EFAW qualification should be delivered in no less than 6 hours (1 day) excluding breaks.

Note – Whilst a first aider’s certificate has expired, that person will not be accepted as a workplace first aider under the Health

& Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, so employers should be encouraged to requalify their first aiders early.

1.3 Intended Audience

activities, to provide First Aid when dealing with an emergency situation.

achieving Unit 1 due to the expiration of these certificates.
