QA Level 3 First Aid at Work Course (QCF)


For your information: This course is a legal requirement for many UK businesses.

Who is it for?
For high risk companies in need of a First Aider.
This course is for anyone interested in becoming a First Aider in the work place, or if your First Aid Assessment requires a member of your staff to be trained to this level. This 3 day course is more intensive than the 1 day Emergency First Aid course, so in turn offers greater underpinning knowledge and practical ability for the student.

Duration: 3 Day Course

What you will learn?

  • Understanding the role of the First Aider, including use of available equipment and the need for recording incidents and actions.
  • Understanding the importance of basic hygiene in first aid procedures.
  • Assessing the situation and circumstances in order to act safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency.
  • Administer first aid to a casualty who is unconscious and/or in seizure.
  • Administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
  • Administer first aid to a casualty who is wounded or bleeding and/or in shock.
  • Administer first aid to a casualty who is choking.
  • Provide appropriate first aid for minor injuries.
  • Recognising the presence of major illness and applying general first aid principles in its management.

In addition, candidates should be able to demonstrate the correct first aid management of:

  • Soft tissue injuries.
  • Injuries to bones including suspected spinal injuries.
  • Chest injuries.
  • Burns and scalds.
  • Eye injuries including how to irrigate an eye.
  • Sudden poisoning and anaphylactic shock.

There is a practical assessment and written assessments throughout the course. Successful students will receive a 3 year certificate (The HSE and all first aid training providers now recommend an annual refresher of 3-4 hours; this is not mandatory, but can be pre-booked).
