“Iceni Academy staff First Aid trained”……EFAW Level 2



First Aid at Work Norfolk would like to congratulate the staff at Iceni Academy for passing their Emergency First Aid at Work level 2 course.

They all demonstrated fantastic skills learnt during the course, and put them in to practice though out the day.

I think one or two may have got a bit carried away, but nevertheless good practice…..Mr Carmichael and Miss Turner and poor Mrs Walker.

The Emergency First Aid at Work course (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace.

This course is available as a fully accredited QCF qualification or as a ProTrainings CPD certified qualification, all courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2013 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981

Industry Body for First Aid Training – ProTrainings Emergency First Aid at Work

This is a regulated qualification that is provided through an awarding organisation that is recognised and regulated by one of the UK regulators (e.g. Ofqual in England, SQA accreditation in Scotland). The certificate of achievement awarded to successful learners will contain the logo of Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance and the relevant UK regulators along with the full qualification title and number.

This course must be at least 6 contact hours and run over a minimum of 1 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years. To renew you need to attend another EFAW 6 hour course.

This course must be delivered as a 100{cd4d27bb89ea1b92db5e362b689854b46535b670724236d332295316de748931} classroom course and cannot be delivered via online or blended training to comply with the HSE requirements. Candidates completing our EFAW courses receive access to our video library for refreshing skills and reference.

The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher courses and our online course meets this requirement.

This course is also available as a QCF course, meeting the requirements of Ofqual. The employer has the choice of a standard ProTrainings certificate or a QCF certificate. Both are acceptable, have the same content, and meet the same learning outcomes. QCF level courses are usually needed where funding is required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose the QCF course, there are additional assessment criteria to be done with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
