Level 3 First Aid At Work Refresher (2-Days)
This course is regulated by Ofqual and meets the requirements of the HSE.
This course is designed for those who have already gained a 3-day Level 3 First Aid at Work qualification and wish to renew their qualification. As this is a refresher course we are able to condense the 3-day First Aid at Work course into just 2 days.
Please consider the following rules for attendance:
A First Aider can renew their FAW qualification by attending a 2-day re qualification 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 re qualify by attending a 2-day course providing the following 'special considerations' have been met:
1) A signed letter from the employer to Train First Aid stating the reasons why in their opinion, the First Aider is suitably experienced to attend the 2-day renewal course and does not require a full 3-day FAW course.
Or 2) A decision is made by Train First Aid after discussions with the employer or First Aider, and deciding that their previous experience is suitable to attend a 2-day course.
This course has a minimum of 12 contact hours in the classroom, consisting of both practical and theoretical exercises. It usually takes place over two days, but can be spread over a longer period if required.
