First Aid at Work Requalification is a training course for anyone who wants to renew their First Aid at Work certificate.
On completion, the First Aid at Work certificate is valid for three years.
Overall, you will refresh your first aid knowledge and remain a qualified first aider for your organisation.
Delegates who need to renew their First Aid at Work qualification should attend this course. Without an in-date first aid qualification, you are no longer contributing to your organisations first aid requirements.
Rather than letting your qualification expire and attending the three-day course, you can choose to attend this First aid at Work Requalification. This first aider course is cheaper than the three-day course, and you will also spend less time away from work.
You should not be administering first aid without proper, in-date training especially in the workplace. This is because you could put casualties in further harm. All in all, this First aid at Work Requalification course will ensure that you have the tools and knowledge to apply workplace First Aid properly.
