First aid training

We have a wide range of First Aid courses available.  All of our course can be delivered in house, at the Arion Training Centre in Sleaford or at a training centre near you.  If you are not sure which course is the right one for you please call and one of our friendly staff will be happy to help you.

Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)
1 Day
The course aims to teach delegates basic aspects of dealing with emergencies, with an emphasis on those occurring in the workplace. Handling ‘life threatening’ situations is covered as well as recognising and responding to some of the more common ailments that may be encountered in the workplace.
On completion of the course, delegates will be able to recognise and deal with:
Roles and Responsibilities of Appointed Person
Role of the First Aider
First Aid Principles
Legal Requirements and Responsibilities of Employers and Employees
First Aid Kits
The Aims and Priorities of First Aid
Emergency Action Plan
Resuscitation (CPR)
Use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
The Recovery Position
The Modified Recovery Position
Dealing with an Unconscious Casualty
Dealing with Choking
First Aid for Minor Injuries
Use of Tourniquets
Heamostatic Dressings


This accredited course does not fully replace the need for the full first aid qualification but has been designed to supplement those who are fully qualified.  It has also been designed to reduce the need for FAW qualified personnel when the numbers of EFAW are increased.  It would suit anyone in a work environment as well as those who simply wish to learn how to carry out Emergency First Aid.

Typical Interest Groups
Any employer, employee or the general public..

In line with recommendations from the HSE, on completion of the course, delegates will receive an Emergency First Aid at work certificate which is valid for 3 years and updated through refresher courses annually.
