QCF FAW and HSE Proposed Changes

6 November 2012 in Classroom Training, Featured Articles, First Aid, Health & Safety, Instructor, Online Training

The First Aid at Work qualification will be available as a QCF level 3 course from January 2013, ProTrainings will be able to offer this qualification alongside the HSE Approved 3 Day First Aid at Work Course, which will continue until the HSE no longer approve first aid training which will happen in April 2013 at the earliest.

This new course is not the only option that will be available to employers and employees after the HSE changes, trackable, credible CPD certified certificates from large training organisations such as ProTrainings will be perfectly acceptable according to the Health and Safety Executive.

The QCF Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course has been available since the onset of the EFAW a few years ago and the FAW is the next development to the QCF qualifications.

Employers will not all want or need a QCF certificate, at ProTrainings we are giving you the choice, the QCF and non QCF course materials and course delivery will be identical and our instructor dashboard will soon be amended to comply with the rules of QCF, however delivering QCF level courses requires all trainers to have PTLLS as a minimum under the Ofqual regulations and there are registration requirements, additional checks and centre management. If you would like to register to deliver QCF courses through us, please let us know.

If you want to deliver the QCF courses and do not have PTLLS or a recognised Train the Trainer qualification, ITG provide PTLLS courses online with 1 day in the classroom or as intensive 4 day courses, for more information please call Liz on 01206 580464.

Please note that until the HSE changes take place the Emergency First aid at Work, 3 Day First Aid at Work and 2 Day re-qualification courses will remain HSE approved and can be delivered and certified through ProTrainings as before.  We will notify you when the changes do take place.

If you need more information, please contact us on support@protrainings.uk or call 01206 585068.
