My First Aid at Work certificate is due to expire.  What do I need to do?

To maintain a First Aid at Work qualification you will need to attend the 2 day First Aid at Work (Re-qualification) course before the expiry date shown on your certificate.  If you have an Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, you will need to attend the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work course.
Both of these courses provide you with a new certificate which is valid for three years.


What is the difference between a First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work course?

The First Aid at Work course is a comprehensive three day course that covers everything that you will need to know to be an official first aider within your company, especially those with high risk factors or have a large amount of employees.
The Emergency First Aid at Work course is a one day course which is more appropriate for lone workers such as on-site construction personnel, lorry drivers who need to know the basic emergency patient care skills (CPR and First Aid).
