As this course is a requalification course, it is only for students who have a First Aid at Work (three day) certificate that is either due to expire shortly or has expired within the last month. 

If you need an initial qualifying course then please see either our First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work courses. Similarly, if your certificate has expired by more than 1 month, you will need to resit the initial course.   

Our First Aid at Work (Requalification) course is 12 hours, excluding breaks, over a minimum of two days. This is a HSE requirement for this course. 

Courses usually assemble ready to begin at 9am and finish each day at 5pm with breaks throughout the day. Students must attend the whole course to be able to receive their certificate. 

On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a First Aid at Work certificate which is valid for three years. Annual refresher training is highly recommended.
