Level 3 Three Day First Aid at Work Training Course in Surrey, Berks and Hants

The First Aid at Work Level 3 qualification (FAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that they require a fully trained first aider for their workplace and this course comprises 18 contact hours of training, with certification, which is valid for 3 years.

In May 2016 the HSE and Awarding Organisations announced that computer based blended training should be allowed for all workplace first aid courses and so we now offer this option. The blended course entails 6 hours of online training followed by 2 days in the classroom. The online element allows you to learn at your own pace and at a time that suits you, so gives you greater flexibility to manage your training around the hours that you spend with your clients.

We are very flexible in our delivery of training and can agree timings that fit around your work schedule. Our onsite First Aid at Work course is available in Ascot, Bracknell, Camberley, Chertsey, Egham, Farnborough, Farnham, Fleet, Guildford, Maidenhead, Reading, Slough, Staines, Sunbury, Weybridge, Windsor, Woking, Wokingham and surrounding areas.
