if you work in a low-risk workplace, such as a shop or an office, we have a number of options for first aid training.
For workplace first aiders we recommend the three-day Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work to give you the confidence and training to manage any workplace accident or emergency. This qualification only lasts for three years, but we also offer a half-day annual refresher course to keep your skills current.
Alternatively, to cover the minimum requirement for first aid in the workplace under the Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations, we offer the one-day Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work
For the higher-risk workplace such as industrial, manufacturing or utilities premises where there is the possibility that a first aider may have to deal with a serious injury, the Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (Management of Catastrophic Bleeding) is recommended.
Additionally, for forestry workers, particularly those working on Forestry Commision land, the three-day Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work +F has been developed to meet Forestry Commision requirements where a First Aid +F is required, and the Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work +F is for those undertaking the role of emergency first aider with the same requirements.
If you deliver activities in an outdoor setting, we offer a number of specialist courses where the level of training reflects the likelihood of medical assistance not being immediately available:The Level 3 Award in Forest School First Aid is a unique qualification that combines a number of essential qualifications in one course.
For those taking on the role of first aider in an outdoor activity centre we recommend the two-day QNUK Level 3 Award in Outdoor First Aid.
The Level 3 Award in Activity First Aid is a course with specific content for sports coaches and instructors, who may also deliver activities outdoors.
For those who work with children in a more traditional setting, particularly an early years or nursery setting, the two-day Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid provides comprehensive training for first aiders, whereas the Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid is more suitable for those who simply require emergency first aid training, or to fulfil the minimum requirements of the Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations.
For those requiring additional training the Level 3 Award in Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions offers specialist add-on training, particularly for those working in an early years setting.
For specialist workplace first aid training, we can also offer an intensive Level 3 Award for First Responders and a Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support (Adults and Children); a one-day course in basic life support, that may be required in some workplaces. For those working in a prehospital, healthcare or leisure setting, we offer the Level 3 Award in Administration of Emergency Medical Gases and the Level 3 Award in Administration of Emergency Oxygen.
