Alongside meeting these obligations, you will also be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to handle a wide range of emergency situations, from minor injuries to life-threatening conditions. With the Emergency First Aid at Work course from Training Plus, you will be able to administer the right treatment swiftly and decisively during a crucial emergency moment where every second counts!

How long does the certificate last?
Certification lasts for three years. Although the HSE strongly recommends that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training, over half a day, during any three-year FAW/EFAW certification period. Although not mandatory, this will help qualified first-aiders keep up to date with any changes to first-aid procedures and maintain their basic skills.
If I attend an Emergency First Aid at Work Course, what does this mean?
Successful candidates will receive a certificate which allows them to practice as a First Aider for three years after which a re-qualification course will become necessary. The HSE strongly recommend that first aid skills are updated by taking a refresher course yearly.
What is the difference between FAW and EFAW?
FAW (First Aid at Work) does include EFAW (Emergency First Aid at Work) training and also instructs the first-aider to apply first aid to a range of illness and specific injuries. This is a minimum of 18 hours over three days. The type of course required is dependent on risk. EFAW training enables a first-aider to give emergency first aid to someone who either becomes ill or is injured whilst at work. This is a one day course.
