GWO Enhanced First Aid Refresher (EFAR)

GWO Enhanced First Aid Refresher (EFAR) is part of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) course portfolio, which sets the standard for training in the global wind and renewable energy industry.

The standard has been developed in response to the demand for recognisable Enhanced First Aid (EFA) training in the wind industry.

Course Overview

GWO Enhanced First Aid Refresher (EFAR) provides the required knowledge, skills and attitude to provide ongoing care to an ill or injured casualty over a period of time while waiting for professional emergency rescue teams to arrive.
