New! 2-Day Level 3 First Aid at Work Course

posted in: Blog, GEM News, News | 0

When you told us that our 3 day First Aid at Work Level 3 course took too much time out of your busy schedule to complete, we listened. To combat this problem, we’ve been working closely with our awarding body to come up with a time-saving solution.

A streamlined course

First Aid at WorkTo make the course as accessible as possible to those who need it, we are now running a 2-day Level 3 First Aid at Work course, which replaces the original and lengthy 3-day course.

This is all thanks to the introduction of an e-learning module that allows delegates to complete the theory part of the qualification from their own desk. In turn, this reduces the amount of time spent away from the workplace.

The course will run over 2 consecutive Wednesdays and as long as the module is completed by the second Wednesday, it can be done at a time convenient to the candidate. What’s more, it doesn’t need to be finished in one go – it is possible to dip in and out of it.

Essential First Aid skills

AEDAs an Ofqual regulated qualification, which lasts for 3 years, the Level 3 First Aid at Work course teaches First Aiders in the workplace how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses and equips them with the essential skills needed to give emergency First Aid.

Typically, the course is mandatory for medium-high risk organisations, including those in the construction and engineering trade and whose employees are exposed to chemicals and hazards. It also applies to those companies with a large workforce and/or large number of visitors and customers to the site.

If you’re unsure which First Aid course is right for your business, our First Aid Requirements Calculator is a good starting point. It takes a matter of minutes to complete and uses the latest Health and Safety (HSE) guidance to provide you with a full breakdown of how many First Aiders you need in your workplace and what type of training they require.

Remember, having the correct First Aid provision in the workplace is not only a legal requirement but it is also vital for the safety of employees.
