First Aid at Work Re-qualification

2 Day Course

This comprehensive two-day course covers a wide range of First Aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with an emergency situation with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. In addition to this, should there have been any change to protocols during their initial qualification, then this will be updated.

This course will give the participants a Re-qualification certificate to the highest level of First Aid, The First Aid at Work course, meeting the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

To qualify for this course, your existing First Aid at Work certificate must be either in date, or no more than one month over expiry date. If you go over this extra month, then you must complete another initial 3 Day First Aid at Work course.

Duration

A minimum of 12 hours spread over at least two days.  Ideally, the course should run over two consecutive days, but we have the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs if you so desire.

Certification

Assessment is on-going throughout the course by the instructor, and a First Aid at Work certificate will be issued to those that meet the criteria. This qualification is valid for a further three years.
