Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) Level 3

The ProTrainings Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3 (VTQ) qualification (EFAW) is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace.


All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the new guidelines set out by the HSE in October 2017 and meet the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations 1981 and subsequent 2016 changes.


The SIA will accept this training certificate for those seeking employment in the door supervision and security guard sector. 


All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements. ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) are fully recognised by the HSE as Trade Body Qualifications.


This course must be at least 6 contact hours and run over a minimum of 1 day and the certificate is valid for 3 years.

We also offer Re-Qualification and Refresher training, as well as tailored EFAW for those working in a forestry environment or a school setting.

How are you assessed?

Assessment for this course is carried out in two ways: skills assessment and end of course exam. 

Throughout the course your instructor will observe learners as they carry out skills assessments. These are completed by participanting in demonstrations and using spcialised first aid equipment. 

At the end of the course the instructor will provide learners with a QR code (or link) which will take the learner to a short online exam. 

Upon completion, learners will be qualified and will receive a digital certificate. This will be valid for 3 years.
