Since 1 October 2013 HSE no longer approves first aid training and qualifications – and no longer approves first aid training organisations. This means that businesses have more flexibility in how they manage their provision of first aid in the workplace.
This means that it is the employer’s duty to ensure that any training provider that they select for the purposes of first aid training is competent to deliver that training.
HSE has set out the criteria below, that a competent training provider should be able to demonstrate.
These criteria include:
- The qualifications expected of trainers and assessors.
- Monitoring and quality assurance systems a training company has in place.
- Teaching and standards of first-aid practice.
- Syllabus content.
- The information included on a certificate.
TAP Training has fully qualified experienced First Aid Trainers with a DTLLS teaching qualification & Level 3 Award in First Aid in the work place . We are also a Highfield awarding body approved centre which enables to deliver the accredited QCF Level 2 and 3 Awards in First Aid at Work!
