First Aid at Work


ITC Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work

Our ITC courses are practical and active. We strongly believe candidates learn best through their practical involvement, i.e. it’s a hand’s on course. This qualification has been accredited by Ofqual & ITC First.

The qualification consists of two units (leading to one qualification)

• Unit 1: EFAW – Emergency First Aid in the Workplace (A/504/4517) 

• Unit 2: RMIIW – Recognition & Management of Illness & Injury in the Workplace (F/504/4518) 

This is an 18 hour course and is normally delivered over 3 consecutive days. This qualification lasts for 3 years, candidates are recommended to attend refresher training each year before re-validation. For those candidates who have already successfully completed their FAW and who are still in date a 12 hours re-validation course can be attended.
