Emergency First Aid at Work level 3

APMS are delighted to be working with QUALSAFE in order to deliver superb, high quality, interactive and outstanding standards of training; leading to recognised qualifications across the UK.


“The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training.”


The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification, specifically designed for those who are appointed to act as a first aider in their workplace. It is also ideal for people who have a specific responsibility to provide first aid in voluntary and community activities.

The course is delivered over a 3 day period, students will develop the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of first aid situations, including: assessing an incident, managing an unresponsive casualty, CPR, heart attacks, choking, head and spinal injuries, fractures, anaphylaxis and more.


For a more detailed overview of the topics covered, please download the Qualification Specification at the bottom of this page.

Enrolment on the course can be done via our website by completing the training request document, or by calling our staff to discuss your needs.


However, when your students attend the venue of your choice they MUST BE ABLE TO PROVIDE PHOTOGRAPHIC IDENTIFICATION for FULL enrolment, those who fail to provide this documentation will not be allowed to start, and will be unable to enrol as per (QUALSAFE GUIDELINES).

During the course students will Fulfil the competencies set out within the QualSafe standards of practical and knowledge-based competencies.


In order to successfully obtain this qualification students will complete the QualSafe framework which provides students with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to obtain their QA Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid At Work Level 3 (RQF).


Students shall be assessed by six Practical assessments, two Theory assessment (Multiple Choice Question Paper) and continuous formative assessment conducted throughout the course.

At the first stage this will be checked and verified by the trainer to ensure students completion is to an acceptable standard; which is likely to be passed by (QUALSAFE); all skill exams and written documentation shall be checked by our trainer, when satisfied FULL acceptable assessments shall then be sent to (QUALSAFE) for further verification and certification.


It is therefore imperative that students are able to have full mobility, flexibility and are able to kneel and carry out rigorous tasks.


APMS are happy to discuss the practical assessments required by students’ ensuring their abilities are likely to aid a PASS.
