This course runs over a minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities

Course accreditation
Practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day. A three-year Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (Level 5 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.
