The way the First Aid at Work Training Course is assessed varies between training providers. One assessment component that is universal is the on-going or continuous assessment, where the trainer observes your class participation to see if you have grasped how to administer treatment. Other assessments which are increasingly common for the First Aid at Work Training Course are written. These are typically multiple-choice and cover course material. Assessments are usually at the end of your course. You will be told how assessments will be conducted at the start of your First Aid at Work Training by your trainer.
Security Industry Authority (SIA) has made the Emergency First Aid at Work training a prerequisite qualification for joining the Door Supervisor course. If you do not have the EFAW qualification you need to join the EFAW First Aid training before the Door Supervisor course start date.
