The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF) qualification is the starting point for anyone involved in the delivery of learning.

Completing this course will meet the needs of those who do not require practical first aid input as extensive knowledge is already held – typically Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, First Aid at Work certificate holders or recognised equivalent such as EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONDER – FROS® Blended – (

Who should attend?

There is no “hands-on” first aid taught on this course-candidates must have a strong first aid/medical background before considering this course. Candidates wishing to use the course to train First Aid at Work (FAW) courses must be in possession of a valid FAW certificate, or equivalent unless exempt, at the start of the course. Those who don’t meet this criteria should consider attending the EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONDER – FROS® Blended – ( course.

There is a considerable amount of written work to be completed. This will involve reading of supplied reference books, researching specific topics, applying theory to practical scenarios and demonstrating knowledge and understanding through written work. Therefore, candidates for this course should have a good standard of written and verbal communications skills.
