2 Day First Aid Re-qualification (RQF)

What is it?

Our 2 day First Aid requalification course is a condensed version of the 3 day First Aid at Work course whereby we cover all topics in 2 days rather than 3. Only students who hold a current 3 day First Aid at Work certificate or a certificate that hasn’t expired by more than 28 days can attend.

Don’t get confused between a first aid refresher and a re-qualification..

Who is it for?

Please consider the following rules for attendance:

  • A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending a 2-day requalification course without question, if it’s within 1 month past the expiry date
  • If the First Aider has lapsed by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months, then the First Aider can requalify by attending a 2-day course providing ‘Special considerations’ have been applied

Special considerations are:

  • A signed letter from the employer to the provider of the training stating the reasons why in their opinion, the First Aider is suitably experienced to attend a 2-day course and does not require a full 3-day FAW course

OR …

  • A decision is made by the provider of the training after discussions with the employer, or the First Aider, and deciding that their previous experience is sufficient to attend a 2-day course
  • If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 3 months then they must attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course

The important thing to remember is that as soon as the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace which may well leave the employer with a shortfall of First Aiders. Therefore, it would be prudent to arrange their First Aid at Work Requalification before they expire.
