Emergency First Aid at Work

After an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work trained staff, this level 2 national Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).


Certificates are valid for three years although we advise that the employer promotes ongoing awareness and takes advantage of our First Aid annual refresher from the e-learning platform.

For all courses, candidates must be physically capable of carrying out the procedures detailed in the course overview and must attend for the full duration of the course to be eligible for the course assessment.  Candidates are respectfully asked to wear suitable, loose fitting clothing and flat comfortable shoes as they will be kneeling and lying on the floor at times.


Course Duration

This course runs over a minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.


Course Size

A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.

Although a group of 12 students is the maximum, we much prefer a smaller group of say 6 to 8 as we believe it to be more conducive to learning, especially if the course duration is the minimum 6 hours.



The typical course cost for EFA training is £650 for up to 8 delegates. There is an additional £20 per delegate for numbers between 9 and 12. Please use the contact form for further information, dates and availability or to discuss any aspect of your frst aid needs assessment.
