Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) is the first choice of first aid course for most employers, where workers operate in a ‘Low Hazard’ environment.

This course has been developed by our golf experts in tandem with Scottish Golf in St Andrews, to take the standard EFAW course a step further.

We’ve added specific content that is especially relevant to the golfing context.

Our 7-hour Golf First Aid course is perfect if you work at a golf course. Greenkeepers, hospitality staff, club coaches and all others will all benefit from this course.

Approved and promoted by Scottish Golf, this course covers basic first aid techniques and skills, and the roles and responsibilities of the first aider, and is usually completed in a single day. Discuss with us what your specific requirements are at the time of booking.

*Please note that those working in ‘high hazard’ situations on the course should still complete a 3 day First Aid at Work course if your First Aid Risk Assessment suggests this would be appropriate.

Testimonial – T. Lamont

The teaching was very good and did not fall into the usual trap of just trying to show off their own knowledge. Both instructors where not only very knowledgeable, but also very personable and easy to learn from!

Testimonial – ‘K’

I have done many first aid courses over the years, there is usually something I forget or can't take in. This course was very thorough, on subjects that I expected, but was delivered in a way that made it easier to understand 'why' things do what they do, so therefore a lot easier to remember.

As requested I've completed the survey, but just to say once again it was excellent course.  Very well presented,  relevant content and (surprisingly in the circumstances) plenty of practicals, all delivered in a Covid-safe way.

Testimonial – T. Powell

I felt the instructors were very confident, knowledgeable and approachable. There was a lot of repetition of key skills which helped make it stick in your head and lots of opportunity for individual problem solving. I really enjoyed the course and found it interesting and helpful.

Couldn’t praise Ali enough. Delivered at the right level for an experienced group, and challenged us all on the second day with real life simulations. Our prior training was very much ‘casualty lying on the back, standard procedure’.

Testimonial – K. Miller

Ali was a great, friendly, enthusiastic and honest assessor, he made the course both informative and entertaining.  The first aid experiences of the 12 students ranged from very to none and yet this was never an issue and as someone with no experience I didn't at any point feel out of my depth.

Testimonial – S. Jessiman

I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the trainers and everything was extremely well explained. It gave me confidence that I would be able to react to a range of scenarios and I enjoyed that they showed you how to utilise everyday items rather than specialist equipment.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Mike Smith who delivered the first of 2 OFA courses for Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.  The feedback has been very positive.  I was able to observe some of the course and I would say that it was the best first aid course delivery I have ever seen.

Mike has a methodical approach, is interactive and allows for time for the candidates to practice. His friendly and supportive approach also allows people to ask questions and get involved.

 

Word has got round the team and the next lot of candidates are keenly looking forward to the next course.

Testimonial – T. Lang




Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the training over the past two days. Although I realise how important it is to know first aid training and unfortunately had to use it a few times, I always dread the training as it always shows people dying/injured and horrific scenes.


For the first time ever, the training you provided did not send me home having nightmares and dreading the following day. Your manner and personality in the class was perfect, and a rare occasion can someone hold attention of a class to the level you did.


I liked the way you broke the day into sections and brought everything back together again at the end. I do feel I have learned some new ‘tools for the box’, I can only hope and pray I will never need to use them.
