<< Go Back to Emergency First Aid at Work (1 Day) – Level 6 Scotland SCQF / Level 3 England RQF

When an organisation's first aid risk assessment identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this Level 3 RQF / Level 6 SCQF National Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid - the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

We provide our learners with the skills and knowledge to effectively perform the duties of an Emergency First Aider’s and provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.


The course is delivered over a minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of the necessary practical and theoretical activities required to attain the qualification, plus some pre-course activity could be required. Ideally, the course should be run over one day, but may be spread over a longer time period if necessary but must be completed within 4 weeks of starting the course.


The following subjects are covered on the Emergency First Aid at Work course -
• Responsibilities and reporting
• Assessment of the situation
• Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
• Basic hygiene in First Aid
• Resuscitation and AED awareness
• Anatomy
• Minor injuries
• Bleeding control
• Burns
• Choking
• Epilepsy
• Shock


Practical assessment is ongoing throughout the session by the instructor, and a 3-year qualification will be issued to those who successfully complete the course. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours carried out by a competent organisation.


A maximum of 12 students are allowed on each course and learners must be a minimum of 14 years of age to gain their certificate, subject to assessment.

A student cannot hold the responsibility of an Emergency First Aider in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.

The certificate will expire as dated on the learner’s certificate, irrespective of age.
