First Aid at Work (FAW) Requalification – 2 days

First Aid at Work (FFAW) Requalification

 

This course is for holders of a current First Aid at Work qualification which is due to expire, or where candidates would like to refresh and update their first aid aid knowledge, and revalidate their qualification for a further three years.

Please note that whilst individuals have up to one month following the expiry of their First Aid at Work certificate to renew via this course, as soon as their qualification expires they can no longer be considered a First Aider in the workplace until it is renewed. It is therefore advised that requalification is undertaken prior to expiry.
