The unit number for Emergency First Aid Skills is Y/600/1250.

This unit will not be replaced in the Health and Social Care qualifications. From 1 July 2013, learners will not be able to register for the Emergency First Aid Skills unit within the following qualifications:

Qualification number Title
501/1670/1 Pearson Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England
501/1699/X Pearson Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England
501/1809/2 Pearson Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for Wales and Northern Ireland

Within the following Health qualifications, the unit will be replaced with unit D/504/6101 First Aid Essentials:

Qualification number Title
501/1768/3 Pearson Edexcel Level 2 Certificate in Healthcare Support Services
501/1767/1 Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Diploma in Healthcare Support Services

Please note that although the replacement unit is very similar, it does not qualify learners to be emergency first aiders at work. Learners who need to be recognised as first aiders are advised to undertake a recognised programme such as Emergency First Aid or First Aid at Work.
