WHERE & WHEN
At your venue or a mutually convenient venue, all we require is for suitable space to deliver both the practical and theory elements of the course content. On dates to suit your group, work commitments and business needs. This is often more cost effective than training individuals.

By arrangement the course can be delivered on non-consecutive days for example one day a week over three weeks. In addition this course can be modified to deliver training on specific content as required.
ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION
All programmes have a clearly defined and documented assessment process to ensure students have obtained a successful level of knowledge and ability. The FAW programme requires continual assessment and a final written paper and practical assessment, each student will be observed completing every practical session.
The overall assessment policy and further information on assessment methods can be found in the WorkSafe Code of Practice for First Aid.
Successful students who have been observed performing the required skills will be submitted for certification. Certificates will be issued following course completion.
