What will I learn?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training.

The Level 3 First Aid at Work qualification is valid for a period of three years. This intensive 2 day course is suitable for those whose certificates are about to expire or have very recently expired. If your certificate expired more than one month before the date of the course, you will need to attend the full 3 day First Aid at Work course. Please contact Sparsholt Business on 01962 797254 to discuss which course you should join.
