Upgrading a QCF EFAW to QCF FAW

17 October 2013 in Classroom Training, First Aid, Instructor, QCF

When students take the EFAW course they may decide that they want to upgrade to the full level 3 QCF FAW qualification.  This is now possible as the FAW is made of two units, the first of which is the EFAW.  All you need to do is to come back and complete the final two days of a QCF FAW and then receive the full level 3 award. The only thing you must do is to complete the course within 10 weeks, after this time you will have to take the whole three days to gain the FAW Award.  If you need any help or guidance,email us at or phone 01206 805359.

All ProTrainings registered instructors now have the option to offer their customers or employees the fully accredited QCF qualification for Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work Courses (subject to completing our QCF Application and receiving approval) or The ProTrainings (Trade Organisation) certificates.

Employers who select an Ofqual Regulated QCF accredited course do not have to prove due diligence by completing a checklist to satisfy themselves of the competency of that organisation for this reason we recommend that all active trainers register with us as a QCF centre if they haven’t done so already to ensure that they can meet the needs of all of their potential customers.
