First Aid at Work Qualifications & Courses (QA/RQF)

First Response Resuscitation & First Aid Training Limited runs a wide range Qfqual and HSE accreditation training courses across Bristol, Gloucestershire, Weston-super-Mare and the South West. If you need first aid certification, or first aid qualifications, one of these courses may be right for you so please follow the links below to find out more.


All our First Aid at Work courses are Qualsafe Awarded (QA) and comply to the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF). Some of our courses also CPD Certified (Continuing Personal Development). Please see specific courses for more details. Our online booking section lists all the live first aid training courses that we are currently running.


1) Emergency First Aid at Work Courses (EFAW):

EFAW Level 3 Award 1-Day Course (CPD Certified - 6 points)

This QA/RQF health and safety course taken over 6 hours in one day provides successful candidates with an EFAW First Aid Certificate, which is valid for a period of 3 years. Candidates will learn how to safely administer first aid to patients in a range of situations, as well as how to understand the role of a first aider and how to act in the event of an emergency.


EFAW Level 3 Award 1-Day Re-qualifying Course (CPD Certified - 6 points)

This QA/RQF re-qualifying course should be taken every 3 years, and candidates' original EFAW certificate will be stamped to indicate that their refresher training has been completed.



2) First Aid at Work Courses (FAW):

FAW Level 3 Award 3-Day Course (CPD Certified - 18 points)

This 3-day QA/RQF health and safety course helps to ensure that health and safety at work laws are met by providing adequate first aid provisions for employees. The HSE first aid at work course ensures that first aid personnel receive the necessary training so that they feel confident should they be required to apply their first aid training in the work place.


FAW Level 3 Award 2-Day Re-qualifying Course (CPD Certified - 12 Points)

This 2-day QA/RQF re-qualifying health and safety course enables your designated first aiders to renew their HSE first aid at work certificate. It also provides them with an opportunity to update their HSE training knowledge and skills to ensure that they have the confidence and skills required to deal with any HSE first aid issues at work.


FAW/EFAW Level 2 Award 3-Hour Annual Update Course

Although HSE first aid at work training courses are only required every three years by law in order to maintain a certificate, some employers may request that more frequent HSE training is received by the first aiders. This short QA/RQF 3-hour course provides valuable updates to first aiders skill and knowledge.



3) Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation & Defibrillation Courses:

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation & AED Level 2 Award 1-Day Course

This course, taken over 5 hours in one day, gives learners the knowledge and skills to confidently perform Resuscitation (CPR) and use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to improve a patient's chance of surviving a cardiac arrest by 90% if used within the first two minutes.


Please note: We ask that all delegates bring photo ID with them for course verification on the day and wear clothing suitable for practical exercises, some of which will be done on the floor. On the day candidates will be required to successfully complete practical and theory assessments. Full details are provided to all delegates in our welcome packs.


If the course you are looking for is not listed, please get in touch to discuss your training plans, or to design a tailor-made course specific to your requirements.
