First Aid at Work requalification - Level 3: 2-day

This 2-day First Aid at Work course is designed for those who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification and are due to expire. 

Course Summary

FAA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF)

Award in First Aid at Work at SCQF Level 6

This 2-day First Aid at Work course is designed for those who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification and are due to expire.

Please consider the following rules for attendance:

• A First Aider can renew their FAW 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 FAW 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 requalification before they expire.
