RQF Level 3 First Aid Courses 

If you are looking to book a RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework) course please press book now and you can scroll through the calendar for further dates.  Alternatively, call us on 01782 438813 or email hello@youcandoit.training

We deliver these cost effective First Aid courses in Stoke on Trent or nationally.

RQF Level 3 First Aid courses are ideal for those who wish to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding, and for those who wish to become the sole first aider for their company. The course is a regulated qualification meaning no due diligence. It covers the very basics of adult life support and will give learners confidence in using their skills. On some courses the content is a wide range of topics from CPR and defibrillation all the way to splinters. 

 

From any Stoke on Trent or Nationwide employers, RQF Level 3 First Aid courses are perfect for a business whereby accidents are minimal. For learners, this will enable them to deliver first aid in the workplace, and will support a role in the workplace. This qualification meets the requirements for First Aid as outlined in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981,the requirements for first aid training outlined in the Early Years Foundation stage documentation, and the Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.

 

For RQF Level 3 First Aid courses, learners must demonstrate first aid procedures as part of their assessment, as they would in a real work environment, including providing CPR to a casualty on the floor. Therefore, learners must be physically capable of performing CPR on the floor.

Suitability.

This First Aid training is aimed at those who undertake the responsibilities associated with being a workplace first aider.

 

Assessment.

Learners are assessed for this emergency first aid qualification using the following methods:

Multiple choice question paper
 

Practical observation

The assessment will take place under examination conditions, i.e., learners will sit at least 1.25 metres apart and will not be allowed to confer during the examination. No books, including dictionaries, will be permitted during the examination.

 

Business benefits.

Having designated first aiders in the workplace is a legal requirement

Nobody expects an emergency to happen. Having trained first aiders onsite ensures that if an emergency situation does arise, it will be dealt with in a prompt and effective manner

Failing to provide qualified first aiders puts everyone involved in your business at risk. This includes your employees, customers and visitors.
 

Learning outcomes:

Understand the role and responsibilities of a first aider.

Assess an incident

Manage an unresponsive casualty who is or is not breathing normally

Recognise and assist a casualty who is choking

Manage a casualty

Conduct a secondary survey

Administering First Aid

Assessment of First Aid at Work needs.
 

Employers are required to carry out an assessment of first-aid needs. This involves consideration of workplace hazards and risks, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors, to determine what first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel should be provided.
 

If in doubt, we can provide a consultancy service. There is also a free HSE leaflet, which contains a useful checklist covering the points employers should consider when carrying out the assessment.
