The FAW course can be specifically tailored to your unique operating environment, please speak to us to discuss your requirements further.
The First Aid at Work qualification can be chosen in conjunction with that of AED (Defibrillator) training for those workplaces who have, or intend to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on site. The EFAW course occurs much as normal, with our instructors then including the relevant knowledge and skills to enable the participants to confidently demonstrate correct use of an AED within a resuscitation scenario. The benefit of tying these courses together when booking means you save time spent in training and money – our clients usually find it creates a better, more focused educational experience for their team.

A First Aid at Work course that is tailored specifically for those involved in sport, professionally or in recreation. Our team are all operational medics and have extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of sporting incidents – for one client alone we have provided over 1800 pitch side treatments in recent years! While the course covers the HSE required syllabus and duration we are then able to include relevant topics and skills that will compliment your general first aid training, this can include; additional focus on head, spine and neck injury, sports taping, sports injury management, minor injuries including cuts, grazes and blisters, additional focus on soft and hard tissue issues. This extra information can be available as a few extra hours or as a full day’s activity – we can also modulise this course to coincide with weekly training sessions for sports clubs.
As one of the UK’s more risky industries we are happy to spend more time with your team covering those additional first aid skills that might be needed due to the working environment. In addition to the main syllabus we spend additional time on the subjects that we, or your risk assessments, feel would greatly benefit the safety of your staff. Whether its specifically including practical’s demonstrating how to treat concrete dust in the eyes, electrocution, crush injury or common injuries to hands we can ensure your staff are much better prepared.
