This 2-day course is designed for individuals who hold a valid 3-day First Aid at Work course certificate. First aiders must complete this requalification course before the expiry date of their current 'First Aid at Work' certificate. If the person does not retrain or requalify before the expiry date of the qualification, they will no longer be considered a competent first aider in the workplace. After this time, it is up to the employer to decide whether the individual needs to undertake the 2-day or the 3-day qualification. The employer's decision should be dependent on the amount of time that has elapsed since the expiry date of the qualification.
The course is delivered across two days, or in shorter sessions for flexibility (for up to 6 weeks). Sessions times can be arranged to meet your needs (weekdays, weekends, daytime or evening). The courses are delivered and assessed by accredited trainers and assessors.
Please contact us for a group booking price (see our contact details at the bottom of this page).
