This 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is full accredited and designed for low risk environments such as the office, low hazard manufacturing / warehousing, health & social care and small to medium sized organisations where there is no requirement for a First Aid at Work (FAW) trained person. Under the new regulations this course has changed from a Level 2 QCF and becomes Ofqual regulated (RQF) Level 3 accredited.

Ashtree offer the Ofqual accrediting system for EFAW courses, this replaces the HSE accreditation with the new Level 3 (RQF) Award in Emergency First Aid at Work certificated through our AO (Awarding Organisation). The syllabus & practical Assessment method remain the same but an end of course test has been included. Call us if you need any clarification as to which course you need.

Please note: We also provide the Emergency First Aid course which is exactly the same as the EFAW but is not accredited, we supply this course as an alternative for organisations that wish to have qualified “First Aiders” on site but in their opinion do not need them to be accredited. The HSE recognise this training providing a suitable “Needs Assessment” has been undertaken by the organisation, we can help you with this if you think this course is more suitable.
