About this course

The First Aid at Work (Requalification) course is taught over two days. This course is suitable for current qualified first aiders wishing to update their skills and competencies as well as being informed of any change in practice and guidelines.

The range of subjects that are covered are the same as the First Aid at Work course, however, this course has been designed to update participants’ current awareness of the legislation and regulations, as well as existing knowledge and skills, therefore less time will be spent on each topic.

Owing to the practical nature of this course a basic level of general fitness is required. Delegates must be physically able to carry out the procedures detailed in the course outline. Should you have any questions relating to the accessibility of this course please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Simulated competency assessments will take place throughout the session, supervised by one of our trainers, allowing delegates to return to the workplace and embed the learning further, until deemed competent within their organisation’s guidelines and protocols. It is important to remember that as soon as the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a first aider in their workplace and that there are rules for attendance that need to be observed as stated below which are not set by Care Learning and Development. A first aider can attend if their First Aid at Work qualification is within 1 month past the expiry date. If the First Aid at Work qualification has lapsed by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months, special consideration will be given on an individual basis and we will require a signed letter from the employer or commissioning organisation, stating the reasons why in their opinion, the first aider is suitably experienced to attend a two days course and does not require a full three days First Aid at Work course. If the First Aid at Work qualification has lapsed beyond 3 months, then they’ll have to attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course.
