ITC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid (RQF) 6 + Hours

HSE Approved Emergency First Aid At Work Course

Course Overview

ITC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF) 6 + hours

Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements, and the 1 Day ITC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work RQF qualification is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose. This qualification is ideal for workplaces that have been risk assessed and classed as a LOW risk workplace.

EFAW is delivered by Centres accredited by Awarding Organisations, regulated by OfQual. ITC First is an Awarding Organisation. All candidates must attend the full 6-hours contact time in order to fulfill the qualification 'license to practice' requirement. As well as a full attendance requirement each candidate is continually assessed on each section of the programme.


Course development

With modern mobile communication, modern emergency service response times and the changing face of UK employment from a manufacturing to a service economy, first aid need have changed. If the risk assessment is that employees may be faced with life-threatening incidents where they have to manage the casualty for 10 minutes, or very minor incident that will not require medical assistance, then the EFAW is the course that meets the criteria. For other potential first aid circumstances the employee can phone for help and medical assistance.

If further first aid training is required the employer can decide on the full 3 Day ITC Level 2 Award in First Aid at Work RQF (FAW) qualification.
