There are two certificates recognised by the Health and safety executive.
The Full Statutory and the Appointed person. We run both at Aquatech.
An Appointed Person certificate is suitable for low risk working environments and is gained by attending a single days training (no exam required).
- Airway clearance
- Control of bleeding
- Management of unconscious casualties
- Minor injuries
This course can be tailored for specific groups e.g. water sport enthusiasts, people responsible for care of the elderly etc
The Full Statutory certificate suitable for every working environment and necessary for higher risk environments takes four days to complete with an assessment of the students skills at the end.
If a valid and current 'FAW' certificate is held a two-day re-validation course can be arranged.
- Airway clearance
- Breathing difficulties
- Management of unconscious casualties (including epilepsy, diabetes, head injuries, strokes, heart attacks & poisoning)
- Control of bleeding and application of dressings
- Damage to bones, ligaments and joints
- Eye injuries
- Burns and scalds
- Minor injuries and illnesses
Certificates for both the above courses are valid for a period of three years and are valid in any work place throughout the United Kingdom. Students will be supplied with comprehensive handout materials appropriate to their course. You should wear appropriate clothing, as there are some practical sessions included.
