Qualified first-aiders must re-qualify their certificate every
three years in order to meet the statutory requirements of the
Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
This comprehensive two-day course covers a wide range of first
aid emergencies, enabling learners 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.
Learners are required to present a copy of their current
First Aid at Work certificate which is valid for the duration of
the course. Re-qualification can take place up to 90 days before
the expiry date of the existing certificate.
Benefits to employer and employee
Learners will refresh their knowledge of first aid principles
Employers will meet their obligations under health and safety
legislation and be confident that their employees can be given
immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.
On successful completion the learner will be issued with a new
First Aid at Work certiﬁcate approved by the Health and Safety
Executive (HSE). This qualiﬁcation is valid for a further three
years. The HSE strongly recommends that all first-aiders attend an
annual 3-hour refresher course.
The course will cover the same topics as the original First Aid
at Work qualification.
All learners will be assessed by independent assessors on their
ability to act safely, promptly and effectively for a casualty who
is unresponsive, requires CPR and who is wounded and bleeding.
