Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification : 12-hour course
This 12-hour First Aid At Work 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 a 12-hour requalification course without question, 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 re-qualify by attending a 12-hour course 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 12-hour course and does not require a full 18-hour FAW course
- A decision is made by the provider of the training after discussions with the employer, or the First Aider, and deciding that their previous experience is sufficient to attend a 12-hour course
- If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 3 months then they must attend a full 18-hour First Aid at Work course
