Driver CPC with Emergency First Aid at Work

The Baptist Church Maidstone, Kent ME15 6LU United Kingdom

Monday August 21st at 09:00 - 17:00

Course Information

Adapted to meet the requirements for the Driver CPC, this Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course covers the normal EFAW subject matter plus secondary survey, head injuries and spinal injury management. It is run in conjunction with Driveline Driver Training who offer a full range of Driver CPC courses

Duration

The course requires 7 hours of teaching time plus breaks and is taught in one day

Assessment

Assessment is in the form of practical exercises and a straightforward multiple choice paper. Candidates must pass both elements to qualify for the First Aid certificate; a pass of the First Aid course is not required to obtain the CPC certification

Please note that candidates must be able to perform exercises at floor level where required. It is a requirement of all regulated courses that the candidate should be able to communicate effectively with Emergency Services and, although this is not assessed formally, your instructor must be satisfied that this is the case. As such, all the question papers are in English and a reader will be provided if candidates have literacy concerns or learning difficulties.

Certification

Once qualified, the First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years, at the end of which candidates will need to attend a one-day EFAW to requalify. It is recommended by HSE that all First Aiders should do an annual 3 hour refresher course to keep their skills up-to-date.

CPC certificates are supplied for attendance on the course irrespective of whether the First Aid course is passed

We book a maximum of 12 people per trainer. Larger groups can be accommodated with additional trainers.
