WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
The IQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) meets The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 in respect of First Aid at Work and is aimed at individuals who intend to develop and gain formal recognition of their knowledge, understanding and skills of first aid at work.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
The course duration is a minimum of 3 days and the qualification is applicable to those who work or intend to work for a range of organisations, as all employers are required by law to offer First Aid provision to their employees. By completing the two mandatory units, all learners will cover the essentials of First Aid, including roles and responsibilities, incident assessment and managing and administering First Aid to casualties in a variety of situations. These situations could relate to breathing, chocking, bleeding, shock, minor injuries, burns, scalds, poisoning, illness and anaphylaxis. Objectives of the qualification include preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
- Classroom (face-to-face) Learning
- 3 one day workshops covering Emergency First Aid in the Workplace and Recognition and Management of Illness and Injury in the Workplace
