Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)

Course Aim

This 1 day course (six hour contact time) is designed for anyone.

In the UK approximately 30,000 people sustain a cardiac arrest outside hospital and before the emergency medical services are able to attend, therefore if members of the public have more understanding of first aid, it is possible that more lives could be saved.


The course can be conducted within your own premises, to a maximum of 10 delegates, or alternatively you could be added to one of our open courses run at a designated venue.  A suitable training area must be free from distractions and have an area for practising activities.
