The course will weigh heavily on the practical element of first aid. You will be shown how to improvise using ready-to-hand material whilst using first aid packs. The course assessment is a scenario-based practical assessment using the skills you have been shown and taught. The AFA course involves at least 12 hours of training run over 2 days or multiple shorter sessions. Not only is Basic Life Support included, but many other First Aid conditions are also covered, making the full qualification very comprehensive.
Unit 1 (or day 1) of this qualification contains and covers the learning outcomes of the Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work, so those who wish to gain the Level 3 Award in EFAW are able to sit day 1 of this qualification.
