Our First Aid at Work Re-qualification Level 3 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 First Aid at Work qualification by attending our 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3 course, 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 requalify by attending our 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3 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 First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3 and does not require a full First Aid at Work Level 3 course

or

  • A decision is made by the provider of the training course after discussions with the employer or the First Aider, and deciding that their previous experience is sufficient to attend a 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3
  • If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 3 months then they must attend a full First Aid at Work Level 3 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 advisable to arrange their First Aid at Work Refresher before they expire.
