Introduction to First Aid unit (HX1W 75)

We have devised an alternative to the unit HX1W 75, following revised guidance by the Resuscitation Council (UK) regarding the undertaking of CPR. This new unit takes account of current legislation and meets current first aid procedures as set out in the Health and Safety Executive guidelines.

The unit HX1W 75 will remain available until 30 November 2022. The new unit 'Introduction to Basic First Aid' (J54S 75) is available now. Centres approved for the unit HX1W 75 have been given approval for the unit J54S 75.

You can access the new unit specification using our online unit search facility. The assessment support pack is available from our secure website and you can arrange access to it through your SQA co-ordinator.
