Delivery & Assessment:
This course is delivered over 12 contact hours through a combination of theoretical discussion, video, practical instruction and scenario based learning. A range of informal assessment techniques are used by the trainer throughout the learning process to measure the Learner’s knowledge, skills and understanding. Learners must attend all sessions to qualify for assessment.
The First Aid at Work Requalification follows the same assessment criteria as the 3 day First Aid at Work course. Competency in the necessary life-saving skills is assessed through 5 practical assessments:
- Unconscious Casualty
- Wounds, bleeding & shock
- Secondary survey
- Management of fractures
There is also a theory assessment for this qualification which consists of 2 multiple choice question papers which must be taken under examination conditions. The minimum mark for these assessments is 14/20 and 18/25 respectively to be considered for an overall ‘pass’.
On successful completion of this training, Learners will be issued with a new FAW certificate valid for a further 3 years. Safe Hands will notify employers 3 months before the expiry of any current certification in order to help them remain HSE compliant.
