About the Course
This course will retrain you to become a fully qualified first aider at work. Your workplace would have assessed as one that needs a First Aid At work person trained within this competency. The course is independently certified, quality assured by the First Aid at Work Regulations 1981 and 2017 as well as meets the guidelines for the Coronavirus 19 safety of people. This course is in two parts, Part one is completed online and the second part is a one-day classroom course for demonstrating your practical skills.
For those who have completed the online portion and possess a qualifying FAW certificate that needs requalification, Level 3 (VTQ) Requalification blended portion 2. 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 take the ProTrainings First Aid at Work Level 3 Requalification Qualification (FAW).
To comply with the HSE's new criteria established in October 2017 and the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981, all courses are delivered, assessed, and quality assured. The HSE recognizes ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) as Trade Body Qualifications. Computer-based blended training is now permitted for all workplace first aid courses, according to the HSE and Awarding Organisations in May 2016. After finishing this online course, you may now renew your First Aid at Work certificate with one day of classroom instruction. Our engaging, blended online video-based course will help you cut down on your training and travel expenses. At your own pace, learn one-on-one with your instructor, when and wherever you want.
This ProTrainings or Regulated Qualification covers all of the HSE and Awarding Organisations' criteria for this blended FAW Requalification course.
We can also offer the traditional 2-day First Aid at Work Requalification class, just contact us for further information.
Years of experience delivering online, blended, and classroom courses provide a modern approach to training. When you pick ProTrainings, you save money while improving the quality of your training. It's clear, concise, and engaging. According to the HSE standards, all of our first aid programs fully comply with the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021.
You must have a copy of your original certificate to enroll in this course. It is only for individuals who currently hold a valid First Aid at Work certificate.
All first aiders should take annual first aid refresher courses, as recommended by the HSE, and our online course meets this requirement.
It's worth noting that participants have the choice to pursue a controlled qualification while participating in a ProTrainings Training Course. As a qualification for first aid instructors who want to offer their regulated qualifications, TQUK accepts the ProTrainings First Aid at Work Qualification. Since it meets all of the necessary learning criteria and due diligence, it is considered acceptable.
Please note that the classroom course requires at least 14 years of age.
This and all of our courses have been independently evaluated as meeting universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) criteria, including a Certified CPD Statement, a ProTrainings Certificate, and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement. This is the second part of a two-part blended course that is classroom-only. You must complete the online course before enrolling in this one.
