First Aid at Work Re-Qualification
This two day course is designed for individuals who hold a First Aid at Work qualification that is due to expire. This course revalidates and updates your skills and knowledge, and covers the content of the First Aid at Work qualification.
What will you cover?
The First Aid at Work re-qualification course is exactly the same as the initial First Aid at Work qualification.

The First Aid at Work Qualification is comprised of two units:
Unit 1: Emergency First Aid in the Workplace
- Role and responsibilities of a first Aider
- Managing unresponsive casualties who are not breathing normally
- Assessing Incidents
- Recognising and treatment for choking
- Minor Injuries
- Managing unresponsive casualties who are breathing normally
Unit 2: Recognition and Management of Illness and Injury in the Workplace

Assessment & Certificate
The assessment takes place continually over the course and determines your knowledge, skills and understanding of managing and treating a variety of workplace injuries and illnesses.
This qualification is valid for three years from the date of assessment and holders must renew their qualification within its period of validity. To re-qualify you should be assessed against all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria in each unit, which is achieved by attending the same two-day re-qualification.
