First Aid at Work Re-qualification
First Aid at Work Training
This two-day course is suitable for people aged 16+ who wish to follow the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) recommendation that first aiders have annual refresher training. The aim is to maintain their skills and keep up to date with any changes which may happen between completing a first aid at work course and re-qualifying three years later. It is designed for anyone who wishes to refresh their existing first aid at work training. The HSE strongly recommends that all first aiders holding a valid first aid at work or emergency first aid at work certificate, complete an annual skills update.
This course must be completed before the expiry of the 3-year validity of the First Aid at Work qualification, otherwise the full 3-day course must be completed.
First Aid at Work Re-qualification

Each learner receives a training pack including resources and ideas to help them practice the skills covered. Depending on the course the pack will have differnt content specific to the type of course attended. For the First Aid at Work courses the pack includes a course companion workbook, first aid manual.
Each course meets the requirements outlined in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The HSE requires a set amount of contact hours that differs for each course. Learners must attend all sessions to be eligible for assessment, which is done by continuous observation and questioning during the course.
On successful completion of each first aid course, you will receive a certificate which is valid for three years.
The number and type of first aiders is determined by the risks in your business. To help, the HSE publish a useful guide in thier First at Work INDG214 Guide and Table 2 from this guide is below to help.
