Certification: Successful candidates receive the accredited EFAW or FAW qualification with a covering note confirming the additional +F content covered. If you already hold one of these two qualifications, the additional +F content can be covered in a separate 2 hour training session to give you the first aid skills required according to Forestry Comission First Aid Policy.
