Entrance requirements:

Prior to acceptance on the programme all candidates must submit a comprehensive portfolio of evidence to support their application. A pro-forma for this is available within the instructor application pack. The minimum entry requirements are:

  • To hold a valid First Aid at Work Certificate issued by a HSE approved organisation.  Exemptions from holding a FAW certificate may be granted and in line with current HSE guidance.
  • Evidence of first aid experience in the workplace.
  • A formal teaching or assessing qualification. Where this is not held and experience cannot be shown by other methods/qualification an action plan will be issued to specify further observed moderations or obtaining of a relevant qualification. E.g. 7307, Cert Ed, A1.


The WorkSafe Instructor Development Programme will enable the instructor to deliver programmes designed and awarded by WorkSafe Training Systems. The instructor or assessor qualification does not necessarily give the instructor an award to deliver training programmes awarded by other organisations. Individual organisations are responsible for their own instructor qualifications although APL may be given by some organisations.
