Currently there are approximately 1200 training providers approved across England, Scotland and Wales. Each organisation has recently been monitored and all are working to the same standard as required by HSE.

New training providers that wish to start running first aid at work courses need to apply to FAAMS for approval. Applicants need to complete an - Original Approval Questionnaire [PDF 110kb] as well as read and fulfil the requirements of the associated guidance: - How to gain and maintain approval for First Aid at Work training under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 [PDF 170kb]

On completion of the questionnaire, it should be returned to the address in the associated guidance, along with the documentation as listed in the guidance and a cheque for £1,350 made payable to the 'Health and Safety Executive'. This charge covers the cost of certification as well as the Original Approval Assessment visit and an Original Approval Monitoring visit. The fee is not refundable if the application is not successful or if the application is withdrawn once the evaluation has begun. The application process will take a minimum of eight weeks from the date when FAAMS receives the required information.
