This course is a re-qualification course following the completion of the First Aid at Work course and should be taken 3 months before the original certification expires but no later than 28 days after expiry. To attend a re-qualifying course, learners must produce a copy of a First Aid at Work Certificate that is either HSE approved or Ofqual regulated. On initial and re-qualification courses, all practical and theoretical assessments must be passed to gain the qualification. Note – When a first aider’s certificate has expired, that person will not be accepted as a workplace first aider under the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, so employers should be encouraged to re-qualify their first aiders early.
