Emergency First Aid At Work (EFAW)

My knowledge of first aid was poor. The course has given me more confidence in helping out. Very good course, well presented. The day went quickly.

I found it all very interesting. Darren was good and obviously enjoys his work!

This course is suitable for anyone who has been identified as a first-aider in the workplace. It is also suitable for anyone who wishes to achieve a qualification in first aid as part of their continued professional development.

A Choice of Certification

Cognet can provide a choice of certification for this course. Firstly, we offer our own certificates which are approved by the First Aid Industry Body. This reflects that we have held continuous Health and Safety Executive approval to deliver First Aid at Work Training since 1992 – until de-regulation by the Government in October 2013.

In addition, for those requiring a Level 2 Ofqual regulated course we are able to provide assessment and certification through AoFAQ
