GWO First Aid & Fire Awareness

GWO First Aid & Fire Awareness Combined Course

About the course

This GWO First Aid & Fire Awareness course combines the course content from both our GWO Fire Awareness and First Aid courses

Course Aims

Hosted at our purpose-built training facility in Winchester, Hampshire, our skilled instructors will cover both practical and theoretical training, including ‘live-fire training’ and a demonstration of firefighting apparatus. In addition, you will also learn to identify hazards on and offshore, first aider responsibilities, managing minor and serious incidents, in addition to secondary scenarios.

Blended Learning Approach

The theoretical elements of Safer at Work courses have now moved online as e-Learning modules. This allows you to study flexibly, at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home or the office. Support and assistance will be available from the instructor delivering this course.

You will still be required to visit Safer at Work’s training venue to complete the practical elements of the course in order to receive your GWO certificate.
