Are you looking for a First Aid training qualification but are unsure of which course you should attend?

3B Training offers a range of Highfield accredited First Aid Courses each course designed for different people, here is some information on what each course entails and who each course is tailored for.

What is a First Aider?

A First Aider is somebody who has partaken in a recognised training course and holds an accredited certificate. There are two types of First Aider: an emergency first aider and a first aider.

Level 2 Emergency First Aid Course (EFAW)

Emergency First AidThis one-day course is aimed at those working in a lower risk working environment. People working in offices, shops and small workplaces are the kind of people this course is made for; although this course can be used as an additional cover for your appointed person for the three-day certificate.

Level 3 First Aid at Work Course (FAW)

First Aid at WorkThe three-day course covers both primary and secondary care; not just how to deal with an accident but how to prevent accidents in the workplace and how to record the incident after the accident. This course is ideal for those who work in a higher risk environment such as building sites, factories with dangerous machinery and hot working environments.

Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification (FAR)

A (FAW) certificate reaches its expiry date after three years and therefore a refresher is needed, 28 days to attend this course after the certificate expiry date otherwise you will have to re-attend the full three-day course again.
