The Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) meets The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 in respect of First Aid at Work and is aimed at individuals who intend to develop and gain formal recognition of their knowledge, understanding and skills of first aid at work. The course duration is 1 day and the qualification is applicable to those who work or intend to work for a range of organizations, as all employers are required by law to have First Aid provision for their employees.

These situations could relate to breathing, chocking, bleeding, shock and minor injuries. Objectives of the qualification include preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
