Hand-outs will be given to each candidate but not a full First Aid book


The contents of all of our courses are based upon the Resuscitation Council UK 2021 guidelines and we update all courses and hand-outs whenever there is a change made. Latest change to hand-outs was March 2023. First Aid follows the Health and Safety (First Aid) guidelines and regulations and those advised by the First Aid Industry Body and Ofqual. There have been changes made to First Aid from May 2021 and our courses and hand-outs are up to date and compliant with these

We produce certificates for each candidate for each course. For Dental Courses these will have your GDC number included, a statement of CPD hours and aims and objectives plus course content on the reverse to comply with latest CPD requirements and guideline. EFAW certificates have our unique centre number and are nationally recognised. They are valid for three years
