One-day First Aid at Work Course

Course Dates

Location  Dates  Time


This new HSE approved qualification came into effect on 1st October 2009, along with new guidance on assessing the needs of First Aid in your workplace.

Your risk assessment of First Aid needs may well identify the need for Emergency First Aiders either as an addition to your First Aiders, or where the risk of your business is low, it may well identify them as being sufficient without the need of additional First Aiders.


A minimum of six hours consisting of theoretical and practical activities.


Assessment is ongoing by the instructor, and a three-year qualification will be issued to those who meet the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of about three hours,
although it is not mandatory.


A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course. Bigger groups can be catered for, but the ratio must not exceed 12 students per instructor.


We are able to deliver this course on your site, reducing your costs in respect of additional time out and travelling.

If you only have a small number that need training then have a look at our course finder facility which may offer you a local course that you can join.


Age Limit

Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a full HSE approved qualification can be offered to all, subject to assessment.

A student cannot claim the official title of ‘Emergency First Aider 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.
