Brief overview of the Level 3 Award in First Aid At Work
(3 Day Course)
This 3 day First Aid at Work course replaces the old 4 day First Aid at Work course. It is suitable for higher hazard workplaces such as construction sites and factories or workplaces with more than 50 employees. Certificates are valid for three years. It is strongly recommended by the HSE that candidates undergo an annual refresher in the years before re-validation is required.
A final assessment takes place on the afternoon of day 3. This takes the form of a series of practical assessments which are run by independent, external assessors. Whilst everyone is always a bit nervous at the thought of an ‘exam’ to pass the assessors always to their best to put everyone at their ease.
