To maintain the First Aid at Work qualification the first aider must attend a First Aid At Work Requalification / refresher course at the end of the third year after the original qualification date. First Aid At Work Requalification course is a minimum 2 day (12 hour) training course and a valid certificate for the original qualification must be produced. The syllabus is approved by the Health & Safety Executive and many employers will find they are required by law to have staff qualified in this course.
There is a 4 week grace period allowed from the expiry of a certificate to still be able to benefit from the 2 day First Aid At Work Re qualification course and not have to resit the full 3 day course.
It is advisable to book a 2 day First Aid At Work Re-qualification course well in advance so the original certificate does not expire.
Lost first aid certificate? If you originally trained with us we will have a record of your name, qualification, and the date of your original course so not having the original is not a problem.
Important: First Aid For All often have spaces on First Aid at Work Requalification courses that are not publicised (i.e. private courses that have spaces) so please contact us if you need a First Aid at Work Refresher course.
For course dates please see First Aid At Work Requalification Courses.
