Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work?
Our emergency first aid course equips you with the basic skills in how to deal with an accident or illness. This course however does not give you the accreditation to be a first aider at work. To become a first aider you must complete the 3-day First Aid at Work course.
How long is the accredited First Aid at Work course?
The emergency first aid at work course is a 1-day course that usually starts at 9 am and finishes at 4:30 pm
How long will my accreditation last?
Your emergency first aid at work accreditation lasts for three years and will then need to be renewed through a first aid requalification course.
Can you fail an Emergency First Aid at Work course?
Yes, but don’t worry it’s very unlikely. It’s very rare that people fail the training, our expert trainers recognise when someone may be having difficulty and provide additional support to ensure, wherever possible that delegates leave with the skills, ability and confidence to meet the accreditation requirements.
Will there be an exam at the end of the course?
No all of our First Aid training courses are 100% assessed throughout the training provision and there is no test or examination.
What happens if I do not successfully complete the course?
If you are unable to successfully complete their training either through absence or being unable to meet the assessment criteria, our trainers will provide additional support to coach and assist individuals to achieve the desired standards, though this may incur additional costs.
When will I receive my accreditation/certification?
Your qualification is valid from the moment you complete the course and are signed off by the trainer. Certification is sent from the awarding body and normally arrives 2-3 weeks following completion of the course.
