VTQ Level 3
About the Course
Most companies whose risk assessment has shown that they need a fully trained first aider for their workplace and who must requalify their certification should pursue the ProTrainings First Aid at Work Level 3 (VTQ) Requalification Qualification (FAW). To meet the new standards established by the HSE in October 2017 and comply with the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and later amendments, all courses are delivered, assessed, and quality controlled.
We provide blended training where you finish one day online, saving a day in the classroom. This is a 100% classroom program that spans two days.
Under the HSE standards, all of our first aid programs fully comply with the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021. The HSE recognizes ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) as Trade Body Qualifications.
The certificate is valid for three years and must include at least 12 contact hours. The course must last two days. Computer-based blended training is now allowed for all workplace first aid courses, according to the HSE and Awarding Organisations in May 2016.
After completing this online course, you'll be able to renew your First Aid at Work qualification with one day of classroom training. Our fun, the blended online video-based course can help you reduce your training and travel expenses. At a time that suits you, learn at your own pace, one-on-one with your instructor.
This ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification is available as a blended FAW Requalification course that meets all of the HSE and Awarding Organisations' requirements.
We can do the traditional 2-day First Aid at Work Requalification course, just contact us for more information if you'd rather do that.
Years of experience delivering online, blended, and classroom courses give us a modern approach to training. ProTrainings saves money, not quality, by focusing on clarity, brevity, and interest. Our video collection is available to students who complete our FAW courses, and it is used for refresher training and research.
This 2-day course, rather than the full 3-day FAW, is only for individuals who already possess a valid First Aid at Work certificate. You must have a hard copy of your original certificate.
All first aiders should take an annual refresher course in first aid, and our online course meets this requirement. The HSE strongly recommends it.
Learners who do a ProTrainings Trainings Course have the option of completing a regulated qualification if they choose. TQUK accepts the ProTrainings First Aid at Work Qualification as a first aid instructor's regulated qualification, and it is recognized by TQUK. Since it satisfies all of the necessary learning criteria and due diligence, this is the case.
Please note that the classroom course has a 14-year-old age limit.
This and all of our courses have a Certified CPD Statement, as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and an Evidence Based Learning statement for online courses, which have been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) standards.
