This Course is a MINIMUM REQUIREMENT to obtain the SIA Close Protection Licence. It is also suitable for those SIA Door Supervisors and Security Officers/Guards wishing to enhance their knowledge in First Aid, or progressing from the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) Course.

This course is suitable for people aged 14+ who might need to provide first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work. It is ideal for organisations whose first aid needs assessment has identified a requirement for someone to hold a current First Aid at Work qualification. It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.

The course is made up of our "blended" learning package, consisting of 4-5 Hours of E-Learning (Home Self-Study) and 2 Days Face-to-Face Classroom Sessions, that run from 9am until 5pm.

Delivered in both an online and classroom setting, this course offers a hybrid theory, practical and hands-on approach that delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real-life situation. For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them.

To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate, and we limit group size to 12 people.

Each learner receives a Training Pack including a host of resources to help them practice the skills covered. The pack includes a course companion workbook, bandages and more.

We recommend that you bring your own lunch, as not all venues have food outlets on site or nearby.

On successful completion of this course, you will receive the Highfield Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) certificate which is valid for 3 years. This course meets the requirements specified by the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
