Who is this course for?

This course is for those holding a First Aid at Work certificate that is nearing expiry or has expired in the last month. 

If your certificate has expired by more than a month, the HSE strongly recommend undertaking the full 3 day First Aid at Work course. If you do choose to attend this requalification course, you should be aware that this is an intensive course, with less time for practice and you will need to work at the pace of the course. 

If your certificate is not due to expire yet, you may benefit from our First Aid at Work (Annual Refresher) course


Our First Aid at Work (Requalification) course is 16 hours, excluding breaks, over a minimum of three 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. 


When you successfully complete a course you will be sent a secure PDF certificate to print and proudly display in your workplace. 

We can also provide full colour, hard copy certificates with industry-leading security features or credit card style plastic certificates on request. Additional charges apply, please contact us for more details.  

Certificates are valid for three years. After this you must attend the full course again to requalify. Annual refresher training is strongly recommended. 

What's included in the price?

  • Registration on your course
  • A full colour course book and training pack to practice your new skills
