First Aid Requalification Level 3

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. 

    • Please consider the following rules for attendance:

      • A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending a 2-day requalification course without question if it’s within one month past the expiry date
      • If the First Aider has lapsed by more than one month, but no longer than three months, then the First Aider can requalify by attending a 2-day course providing ‘Special considerations’ have been applied

Special considerations are:

      • A signed letter from the employer to the provider of the training stating the reasons why in their opinion, the First Aider is suitably experienced to attend a 2-day course and does not require a full 3-day FAW course

OR …

      • A decision is made by the provider of the training after discussions with the employer, or the First Aider, and deciding that their previous experience is sufficient to attend a 2-day course
      • If the First Aider has lapsed beyond three months, then they must attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course

The critical 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 Re-qualification before they expire.

• Legalities, responsibilities and reporting

A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age
and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
