EFAW does not meed the necessary contact-time and assessment criteria required by NGBs who require a current FA ticket to validate their qualification, nor does it permit holders to teach YFA to cadets (a restriction of the YFA authors/owners)
AFA is a sensible full first aid qualification for this organisation but it is well beyond a sensible baseline - that should be EFAW and not Heartstart as we have currently - though I am happy to argue that the requirement for ALL staff to hold a basic FA qualification is somewhat ridiculous.
So the qualification we deliver to you for free does not meet your workplace's requirements? Boo hoo!
I admit it would be great if AFA could be recognised as granting an equivalent to EFAW, though it may require some minor tweaks to content (probably regarding record keeping and HSE first aid kits)
