Requalification information about your certificate

First Aid at Work Certificates*

First Aiders that hold a First Aid at Work certificate can attend a 2 day 'First Aid at Work Requalification' course if:

• Their certificate has not expired by more than 1 month (prior to the course start date)
or
• Their certificate has not expired by more than 3 months (prior to the course start date) AND they have attended first aid annual refresher training during their certification period.

If the above criteria is not met then the 3 day 'First Aid at Work - Initial' course should be taken.

Please note that the HSE state "If the first-aider does not retrain or requalify before the expiry date on their current certificate they are no longer considered competent to act as a first-aider in the workplace".

 

Emergency First Aid at Work Certificates*

First Aiders holding an Emergency First Aid at Work certificate, should re-attend a 1 Day Emergency First Aid at Work Course to requalify.

“*With the recent changes to the HSE First Aid at Work Regulations, we advise employers to review their first aid requirements in order to ensure the most appropriate training option is selected. Simply use our fantastic First Aid Requirements Calculator today to accurately calculate how many first aiders you need and what type of training they require.

 

Paediatric First Aid Certificates

Those holding a Paediatric First Aid certificate (to Ofsted requirements), should undertake the Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid in order to requalify.

Please note that the Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid was introduced on 1st September 2014 as the replacement to the Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Scheduled course dates

The dates of our scheduled courses are regularly updated and are available on-line via the 'Course Finder' at the top-right of the page.

Please contact your first aid training organiser at work with these dates if he or she usually arranges the courses.

Annual Refresher Training

Due to the wealth of evidence on the severity of ‘first aid skill fade’, from Oct 2009, the HSE now recommend that First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders attend annual refresher training. The flow chart below shows the HSE’s recommended sequence of training.
