Alpha Training offer a full range of fully interactive and fun first aid training courses.
Our first aid courses are designed to be both fun and educational.
We know that first aid training can have a bit of a stigma which we aim
to break! We provide professional training giving up to the minute
advice using the very latest in training aids and medical equipment.
Training is provided by our front line emergency service staff who have
a wealth of both theoretical and practical experience.
On 1 October 2009 the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) the new
guidance to first aid training in the workplace was released. The HSE
now recognise 2 levels of first aider in the workplace. These
are employees trained at either First Aid at Work or Emergency First
Aid at Work level.
If you have identified that first-aiders are needed in your
workplace, they must have a valid certificate of competence in FAW or
emergency first aid at work (EFAW). EFAW training enables a first-aider
to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill
while at work. FAW training includes EFAW and also equips the
first-aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and
illnesses. The findings of the first-aid needs assessment can help you
decide whether your first-aiders should be trained in FAW or EFAW.
