The Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work, to provide first aid in a range of emergency first aid situations. It is also ideal for people who have a specific responsibility to provide basic first aid in voluntary and community activities.
The qualification is seen as a minimum standard for coaches in some sports such as tennis (via the Lawn Tennis Association and also England Netball).
