The Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work course has a duration of 3 days. There is a certain amount flexibility and that period may be adjusted to meet learner particulars and needs. It can be increased but not reduced..
Topics covered include:
Roles and responsibilities of the First Aider;

Only a third of parents know what to do if their baby is choking Research carried out locally has found that only
30% of parents would know what to do if their baby was choking.
30% would perform chest thrusts,
whilst over 40% of people would perform abdominal thrusts.
The latter can be performed on an older baby, but is potentially dangerous in a child so young.
Worryingly, 13% of people thought the best thing to do would be to shake the baby.
With a sample of more than 100 parents, these are worrying statistics.

Level 2 Award in Activity First Aid qualification is divided into 2 units, totalling 12 contact hours including Emergency First Aid at Work.  It is aimed specifically at those who are involved in any form of activity, including sports, leisure, indoor or outdoor recreation.
Basic Life Support is included along with many other First Aid conditions, making this qualification very comprehensive consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus an assignment and some pre-course activity could be required.

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires that all employers including self-employed  provide ‘adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.’
No matter the size of your business, these Regulations apply to all workplaces even those with less than five employees, it also includes the self-employed.
What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ has no fixed answer, it will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are actually needed, what materials should be included in a first-aid box and even if a first-aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide.
Although The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 do not place a legal responsibility on employers to make any first-aid provisions for non-employees such as visitors,  the public or children in schools, HSE strongly recommends that non-employees are included in an assessment of first-aid needs and that provision is made for them.

It is a one full day course and includes theory as well as practical events, and designed to boost a candidate’s confidence to deal with emergency first aid situations.
