This comprehensive three-day course covers a wide range of first aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with emergency situations with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. In addition, this course will include any protocol changes that may have arisen since their last training course.

First Aid at Work (FAW) Re-qualification

First Aid at Work FFA

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 FAW qualification by attending a 2-day re-qualification course without question, if it’s within 1 month past the expiry date
• If the First Aider has lapsed by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months, then the First Aider can re-qualify 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
• 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 3 months then they must attend a full 3-day FAW 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 re-qualification before they expire.
