FAW Requalification Course in Colchester for Instructors

17 January 2014 in Instructor

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailIf you need to re-qualify your FAW, we are running a course in Colchester on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th March 2014. This course is for instructors only and will renew your FAW as HABC level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) and update your annual skill review. The cost is £195 plus VAT and you can book by calling Paula on 01206 805380 or emailing the office. You do not have to do your requalification with us, you can complete it locally but make sure that you are getting a level 3 QCF or Red Cross/St Johns FAW, as you cannot deliver First Aid courses without certificates at this level. If you have an old HSE certificate, this will still be valid till it expires.

If you do not renew your FAW you cannot teach once it expires so do not leave it too late.

You must take a copy of all current FAW certificates for all students on a requalification course and upload them to the class on your dashboard (as before).

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailAt  midnight last night the HSE ceased to directly approve the provision of First Aid Training for the Workplace.  This places the responsibility for selecting a first aid training provider on the employer, the HSE have created a guide for employers to follow.

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.
