This qualification is available to candidates14 years old or older, but they may be unable to act as a First Aider in a workplace until they have reached the age of 16.
It is recommended that candidates hold a literacy of First Aid at Work Level 1 or an equivalent of, at a minimum.
Due to the practical nature of the first aid, there will be assessments that gauge a candidate’s skill and their ability to respond to physical demands in a real-life situation. An example would be to do CPR on a mannequin.
It may be possible to create a reasonable adjustment to candidates with a medical condition, disability or learning need. Interested applicants may contact us to discuss.
A written assessment determines a candidate’s viability for the qualification. The assessment paper contains 20 multiple choice questions: learners need to achieve at least15 correct answers to pass. The duration of the assessment is 30 minutes. Learners will not be graded; they will either pass or be referred.
