First-aid training depends on the level of hazards in a workplace setting.  Lower hazard levels only require minimum first aid training. Settings may include offices, shops etc. This may mean the appointment of a person to be in charge of first-aid but they don’t need to be a first-aider. High levels of hazards require a fully qualified appointed first-aider.  Settings may include warehousing, manufacturing, food processing etc.

There are four level of first-aid training;

Appointed Person (AP): Delivered via online or face to face training.

Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW): 1 day face to face training or blended learning whereby knowledge is delivered online and practical elements are delivered face to face.

First Aid at Work (FAW):  3 days face to face training or blended learning whereby knowledge is delivered online and practical elements are delivered face to face.

Additional training: Specialist training for specific work environments e.g., chemical factories.

First-aid certificates are valid for three years. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that refresher training is taken place each year.


First-aid training does not need to be accredited according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), but FAW/EFAW training should be in line with HSE’s first aid syllabus.

Whether online or face to face an employer can choose a training provider of their own choice.



Yes, online training can be used to deliver first aid awareness knowledge.  If/when there is a need for a practical element of first-aid e.g. EFAW and FAW a blended approach can be used.  This is where the knowledge could be delivered online and the practical elements are completed with face-to-face training.
