IQA CPD online Course for First Aid Qualifications

IQA CPD online Course for First Aid Qualifications
Programme Outline (CPD point value – 7)
Cost - £40 + VAT


As an Awarding Organisation many Training Providers cannot get approved because they do not have an Internal Qualified Assurer (IQA), which is a mandatory part of becoming approved to offer Ofqual regulated qualification from an Awarding Body.  This online course can be started at any time. 

Contact AoFA Qualifications on 0129 3344556 to register.

This is a blended learning course for trainers, assessors and internal quality assurance staff. It is targeted at the range of AoFAQ, regulated first aid training qualifications.

The course is presented in a blended format consisting of recorded webinars, videos and exercises. The exercises are carried out in your own first aid training dept/centre/business/workplace. This makes this course highly effective as it is about the processes and procedures you use for your training activities instead of the more convention approach to generic training.

The course lasts typically 7 hrs plus exercises and research. It is split into three 2 hr webinars plus activities you will need to submit for monitoring.

On completion, you will receive a certificate awarding you 7 CPD points.

Note however, this is not a qualification, we strongly recommend that you take the Regulated Qualifications for Training, Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance.  Further information is available on our website at www.AoFAQualifications.org
