Emergency first aid at work
There can be an emergency at your workplace at any time. If your employees are trained in providing first aid in these instances, they will be able to provide help quickly and save lives. At MJ Training, our first aid at work training courses provide your employees with an extensive first aid skill set so that they can identify incidents and manage them adequately. This course also fulfils the recommendations of the HSE that all workplaces should have a designated first aider to provide immediate assistance until more qualified help arrives.
On the 1st October 2017 the Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) course, has been relaunched as the Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) Course. This is a one day course, whose certificate is valid for three years. We can also award our own non-regulated certificate for this course, which is still recognised by the Health & Safety Executive and is exactly the same course, but you are not paying the cost of the regulated certificate.
First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work Requalification
The Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is day one of the 3 day First Aid at Work course. This 3 day course is a much more in-depth course covering a range of other subjects, on other illnesses and injuries and giving the candidate more chance to practice their skills. This certificate is again valid for 3 years and can be renewed with the 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification course, so long as it is undertaken within a month of the original certificate expiring.
At MJ Training, we offer both the 3 day and 2 day Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) qualification. Or we can award our own Non-Accredited Certificate which is still recognised by the Health & Safety Executive at a reduced price if preferred. We offer this qualification at our venue in Lowestoft on our open courses, or we can come to your venue to deliver the course to your staff on site.
You do not have to undertake this course on three consecutive days, so long as the three days are completed within 6-10 weeks depending on whether it is the 2 or 3 day course your undertaking.
We also provide ongoing support for all courses for the lifetime of the certificate, as well as reminders for renewals and where certificates are due to expire. A revision service for first aiders is also available as well as 24/7 support.
Once your first aid certificate has expired you can no longer act as a first aider in the workplace and other arrangements must be made by the employer to ensure sufficient cover.
Annual refresher courses
We run these half day courses on the morning of the Emergency First Aid at Work and the morning of the Emergency Paediatric First Aid Courses.
This morning session satisfies the Health & Safety Executive with regards to the Annual Refresher in first aid, which they strongly recommended all first aiders undertake, therefore helping a business comply with the following HSE requirement, that, ‘a business must ensure their first aiders remain competent at all times.’
We cover the following topics:
Role of the first aider
Accessing an incident
Managing an unresponsive casualty
CPR and safe use of an AED
Treatment of minor wounds, bleeding and shock
Emergency First Aid
We also offer a half day Emergency First Aid course that satisfies the CQC requirements for the Care Standards Certificate. You also achieve a non-accredited certificate. Contact us for more details.
Basic life support/ First Aid / Family first aid sessions
We can also deliver tailored short courses in first aid to suit the client/group. These can be delivered during the day, evenings and weekends, for families, businesses and other organisations.

I just wanted to thank you personally from all of us.
This week we had a clients 80 year old wife go down whilst we were working at their property. She had heat stroke which lead to her collapsing, going into a fit and then stopped breathing. Thankfully she started breathing about 20 seconds later just as i was getting ready to start CPR. I assumed that because she was older and the fit had caused her system to reboot. Our whole team went into a synchronized system of emergency, one shutting down machinery, one calling an ambulance and another bringing me the first aid and trauma box. We kept her in the recovery position as we knew she would feel faint if she sat back up and monitored her until the ambulance arrived. I am 100% sure we would of not been able to help her effectively, relay information and know what to do if we had not attended the course you delivered. None of us were really prepared for the adrenaline of the situation and the clients husband going into mild shock too, but afterwards we all chatted about how you said it takes you by surprise and you will feel exhausted because of our mild panic/fight or flight instinct.
The paramedics were happy with how we had her and we were able to provide them with our basic assessment that we assumed it was extreme heat stroke. Thankfully shes made a full recovery and again we would like to compliment you on how your course allowed us to be of assistance rather than a hindrance by knowing what to to.- S Tibble - Pier Hotel
