First Aid – Work based courses

These first aid training courses are tailored to the specific working conditions, the first aid conditions available and any current incident management planned by its employees. To allow more realistic first aid scenarios to be run, the courses will normally be based on site in the employee’s usual working environment.

AoFAQ Level 2 Award In Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation

(AED) – 1 Day
This qualification has been developed to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to administer basic life support and use an AED safely in an emergency. Early defibrillation and CPR are vital in the chain of survival following a cardiac arrest.

This course meets the HSE and the Resuscitation Council training recommendations for use of AEDs in the workplace.

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric Emergency First Aid (QCF) – 1 Day
This regulated first aid qualification is specifically designed for infants aged under 1 and children aged from 1 year old to the onset of puberty and is ideal for parents and babysitters.

This qualification is the first unit (day one) of the AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Emergency Paediatric First Aid (QCF). This latter qualification meets the requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as issued by the department for Education and Skills Foundation Stage relating to Early Years childcare.

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (QCF) – 2 Day
The course is useful to those who take children away from the school or the nursery setting, on walks to the park or to catch a bus to activities. The group leader would benefit greatly from taking part in one of our courses.

From September 1st 2014, the level 3 award in Paediatric First Aid replaces the level 2 award. The change in level is due to the level of responsibility and autonomy that holders of the qualification will have. The assessment criteria have not changed significantly, however the assessment methods have been amended.

This course is for those who might have to identify and manage emergency situations or manage minor everyday occurrences when looking after young children. This qualification meets Ofsted requirements for those working in early years settings and uses the criteria for effective paediatric first aid training found in Appendix 1 of The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Practice Guidance document.

The current EYFS statutory framework requires at least one person who has a current paediatric first aid certificate to be on the premises or on outings at all times when children are present.
