Course Overview

The CIEH Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work is a two unit, three-day course that will enable successful candidates to act as a first aider in their workplace.

Unit 1: Emergency First aid in the Workplace
Unit 2: Recognition and Management of Illness and Injury in the Workplace

The course is very practical and participative and there will be plenty of opportunity to practise the skills you learn.

As every workplace has different emergency scenarios, students will be given the opportunity to discuss their own requirements at the beginning of the course.

Students should dress comfortably and women should preferably wear trousers.

The training programme for Unit 1 covers the following topics:
- Roles and responsibilities of a first aider
- Assessing an incident
- Unconscious casualties
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- Choking
- External bleeding
- Shock
- Minor injuries

The training programme for Unit 2 covers the following topics:
- Secondary survey
- Injuries to bones, joints and muscles
- Suspected head and spinal injuries
- Chest injuries
- Burns and scalds
- Eye injuries
- Sudden poisoning
- Anaphylaxis
- Major illnesses
- Emergency First Aid

You will be continually assessed throughout the course. At the end of the course you will also undertake a practical and written examination. You must pass this to qualify for the CIEH First Aid at Work Certificate.

The certificate is valid for three years. You must attend a 12 hour First Aid at Work Re-qualification course after 3 years in order to renew your qualification in full.
