Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification : 2 day course


This 2-day First Aid at Work course is designed for those who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification and are due to expire. A comprehensive fully illustrated training book to supplement the First Aid at Work course is included in your training pack.


A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending a 2-day requalification course without question, if it’s within 1 month past the expiry date.

If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 1 month then they must attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course!

The important thing to remember is that as soon as the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace which may well leave the employer with a shortfall of First Aiders. Therefore, it would be prudent to arrange their First Aid at Work Requalification before they expire.
