First Aid re-qualification courses were formerly known as 2 day refresher training. To maintain a First Aid at Work qualification you will need to re-qualify by completing a 2 day re-qualification course before the expiry date shown on your certificate. This certificate is valid for three years.
Learners must hold a valid First Aid at Work Certificate. If a certificate has expired by more than 28 days it is a legal requirement for the holder to attend a 3 day course to requalify.
The course aims to update and refresh your knowledge of the First aid at Work syllabus, while allowing time for revision and practice sessions in preparation for a final assessment.
