Will this course allow me to become a Qualified First-Aider?

For environments with significant health and safety risks, a formally trained first aider may be required on-site to deal with accidents.  The level and type of training that is appropriate will be determined by the company’s risk assessment.  To become a “Nominated” and “qualified” first aider in the workplace, complying with HSE regulations, you will need to undertake the “First Aid at Work Level 3” 18 hours / 3 days training course or the “Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3” 6 hours / 1 day training course or similar (we provide these training courses). 

The HSE UK have recently stated that online training is currently acceptable as annual refresher for First Aid at Work Level 3 and Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3.
