The HSE guidance states that on expiry of their qualification a First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace. It is advisable to arrange requalification before expiry to ensure that a workplace is not left with a shortfall of qualified First Aiders. To re-qualify for the First Aid at Work qualification, candidates can attend a shortened 2-day requalification course but must meet stated conditions. FAW qualification is in date or not expired by more than 1 month.
To be eligible for the 2-day requalification course candidates will need to evidence to the training provider that they are suitably experienced. Experience can be evidenced by having held multiple FAW qualifications, attending annual refresher training, being an active First Aider. Evidence should include a letter from their employer if relevant. The Centre must retain evidence.
Certification of the course is valid for 3 years upon completion. On completion candidates will be awarded a First Aid at Work Level 3 certificate by First Aid Awards (FAA) who are regulated by Ofqual and SQA Accreditation. Our qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).
