First Aid at Work Requalification

Your First Aid at Work qualification must be renewed prior to the 3 year expiration. This accredited course is designed to re qualify the first Aider causing the minimum amount of disruption. All delegates MUST be in possession of a valid certificate in order to attend. If your certificate has just expired as long as the last day of the course is sat within 28 days of the expiry date then successful delegates will have their qualification renewed.

Course Description

It is a requirement of the Health & Safety law that employers provide a safe and healthy environment to work in. If your assessment of First Aid needs highlights the need to maintain the qualification of your First Aiders, then this course will provide you with that.

This comprehensive 2-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 qualification to the highest level of First Aid, meeting the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Duration

A minimum of 12 hours spread over at least 2 days. Ideally, the course should be run over 2 consecutive days, but we have the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs if required.
