Please note that cancellations made less than 7 days prior to the course will usually still be charged for.

*Please note that the EFAW 1 Day is an adult based course, but does cover older children and is useful for Year 6 and above.  It is designed as a good general knowledge course in the workplace but bear in mind that it is designed for adults.

  • Schools should calculate their needs for FAW, EFAW and Paediatric First Aid requirements.
  • HSE Guidelines state that “ .schools are required to have fully qualified FAW trained personnel, they will need to look at their risk assessment and consider the need on average for every 50 people there should be 1 FAW trained person…”
  • Please check the HSE Guidelines for the latest up to date information when considering your Schools’ needs.
  • The HSE risk assessment is a guideline, the individual who completes the 3 day FAW is the person who manages the first aid needs and risk assessment.
