Courses we offer
Please select one of the First Aid Training courses for more information, if you would like to attend an open course, see our Course Calendar:
SWS offer a choice of two courses. Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work. Both courses will give you or your employees the necessary skills and knowledge to be First Aiders in the work place and also to make your business legislatively compliant.
First Aid Training
SWS believe that First Aid Training is not ‘one size fits all’ solution. Every company and situation is different, so, SWS First Aid at Work (FAW) courses and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) courses can be tailored to suit your business needs, focussing on your companies risk profile.
SWS First Aid at Work courses and Emergency First Aid at Work courses involve theory sessions and practical hands on sessions. During the training, phased practical & theory exercises are run, helping candidates embed their learning in a simple step by step process.
SWS First Aid training is delivered by either ex-fire service, forces or ex health service trainers with years of experience and real life events to refer to and draw upon.
Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW), is a one day course that offers basic life saving skills. First Aid at Work (FAW) is a course that builds on these basic skills and moves into the recognition and management of illnesses and injuries.
