First Aid at Work Requalification

The First Aid at Work training course updates and requalifies learners who need to renew their First Aid at Work certificates. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly advises that you complete your requalification within 1 month of your certificate expiring.

Course description

Who should attend?

This course is designed for people who want or need to renew their First Aid at Work certificate.

If your qualification has expired, you can still attend this course, however, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommend you complete the full 3-day First Aid at Work course if it is more than a month since it has expired.

The requalification course, designed for people who still have an in-date certificate, is more intensive. If you choose to attend the requalification course, you will need to keep up with a faster paced course, as you should already have the underpinning knowledge of First Aid at Work.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.

What are the different learning methods for this course? 

Face to face learning (Our Fave!)

Classic learning is entirely classroom based, this course requires 2 days in the classroom. We always recommend this type of training to get as much practical experience as possible


Entirely classroom based, non-consecutive learning involves spreading the 2 days across 2 weeks

Blended Learning

Blended learning has 2 parts:

Part 1: Online

This part of the course is self-directed and is expected to take a day (or 6 hours) to complete in total. You can complete the modules at your own pace in your own environment providing you with the flexibility you need. The online training must be completed within 6 weeks before your face-to-face training.

The online section of this course must be completed before attending the face-to-face section. 

Part 2: Face-to-face (at your training venue)

You’ll be in the classroom for 1 day (after your eLearning is completed), and on this day you will be in a group with your fellow blended course mates. The day will be led by a specialist trainer.
