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, the full three day First Aid at Work course may be more suitable for you. Please contact Sparsholt Business on 01962 797254 to discuss which course you should join.

The role and responsibilities of a first aider

Please note that learners will need to bring a copy of First Aid Made Easy (ISBN 0955229405) to the course. This is available online or from all good booksellers.
Learners must be at least 14 years old on the first day of the training.
There are no other formal entry requirements but to benefit from the learning we advise that Learners have a minimum of Level 1 in literacy or numeracy or equivalent.
