First Aid at Work (F.A.W) Training in Birmingham - 3 days

Welcome to TECC's First Aid at Work (FAW)



TECC offers a full Health & Safety Executive (HSE) approved First Aid at Work course in accordance with the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. Qualified holders of the First Aid at Work certificate can be used as First Aiders in the Workplace in accordance with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.

The FAW is a comprehensive course designed specifically to enable First Aiders to provide effective life support, 
diagnose and treat illness or injury whilst maintaining the due care of the casualty. We can adapt this course to suit particular groups and organisations, for example residential or engineering staff.

The First Aid at Work Syllabus Includes:

  • First Aid Priorities
  • Managing Incidents
  • Basic Life Support
  • Examination of a Casualty
  • Unconsciousness
  • Control of Bleeding
  • Fractures
  • Burns and Scalds
  • Common Illnesses
  • Heart Attacks
  • Eye Injuries
  • Dressings
  • Recording and Reporting
  • Regulations
  • First Aid Kits

The First Aid at Work (FAW) course is run over three days at our Centre in Birmingham or at a location for your convenience. Certification is dependent upon, continuous practical assessment, a theory based questionnaire and verification by an external assessor on the final afternoon. Those candidates who complete the course and are deemed proficient to have reached the required standards are issued with an accredited certificate that is valid for three years*.

The course can be delivered on a non-consecutive day basis, for example, one day a week for three weeks by arrangement.

If a delegate has previously completed the full 3-day First Aid at Work Course and their certification is in date or within 28 days after the expiry date you may wish to consider the 2-day requalification course.

* Under the current guidelines it is 'strongly recommended' that first aid trained staff attend a half-day update every 12 months - before completing full re-qualification training at the three year point.
