2 Day First Aid Requalification

Qualification title:           FAA Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification

2-day First Aid at Work course for First Aiders who hold First Aid at Work qualifications due to expire. 

Please consider the following rules for attendance:

A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending a 2-day requalification 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 it is possible for the First Aider to requalify by attending a 2-day course providing ‘Special considerations’ have been applied

These are:

  • A signed letter from the employer stating the following reasons. Why in their opinion, the First Aider is suitably experienced to attend a 2-day course and why the first aider does not require a full 3-day FAW course. Or
  • 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 it is a requirement for them to attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course

On certificate expiry a First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace. This may leave an employer with a shortfall of First Aiders. Organising First Aid at Work Requalification prior to certificate expiry is recommended.
