Course Outline

This 2-day course is accredited by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) in accordance with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

This First Aid at Work Requalification syllabus covers the same topics as those in the initial First Aid at Work course. However, the training and assessment face-to-face contact is only 12 hours (2 days).

This course complies with the Health and Safety (First-Aid) regulations 1981 (Appendix 5 Content of a first aid at work (FAW) course).

Notes regarding requalification

The FAW requalification course lasts two days and should cover the same content as the initial FAW course (Appendix 5). If the first-aider does not retrain or requalify before the expiry date on their current certificate they are no longer considered competent to act as a first-aider in the workplace. They can requalify at any time after the expiry date by undertaking the two-day requalification course. However, it may be prudent to complete the three-day FAW course, especially where a considerable period – i.e. in excess of one month – has elapsed since the FAW certificate expired. It is for the employer to decide the most appropriate training course to requalify the first-aider.
