First Aid at Work Requalification (Level 3)

  • Max Persons: 12
  • Duration: 2 days (12 hours)

Course Summary:

This First Aid at Work Requalification syllabus covers the same topics as those in the initial First Aid at Work course. However, the training and assessment face-to-face contact is only 12 hours (2 days). This course complies with the Health and Safety (First-Aid) regulations 1981 (Appendix 5 Content of a first aid at work (FAW) course).

Notes regarding requalification

The FAW requalification course lasts two days and should cover the same content as the initial FAW course (Appendix 5). If the first-aider does not retrain or requalify before the expiry date on their current certificate they are no longer considered competent to act as a first-aider in the workplace. They can requalify at any time after the expiry date by undertaking the two-day requalification course. However, it may be prudent to complete the three-day FAW course, especially where a considerable period – i.e. in excess of one month – has elapsed since the FAW certificate expired. It is for the employer to decide the most appropriate training course to requalify the first-aider.

In accordance with Appendix 5 & 6 of the H&S (First-Aid) Regulations 1981

Unit 1 covers the following topics:

  • roles and responsibilities of a first aider;

    • cross infection;

    • recording incidents & actions;

    • use of available equipment;

  • cardiopulmonary resuscitation;

  • safe use of an automated external defibrillator;

  • choking;

  • Wounded and bleeding;

  • Shock;

  • minor injuries (including small cuts, grazes and bruises, minor burns and scalds, small splinters);

Unit 2 covers the following topics:

  • secondary survey;

  • suspected head and spinal injuries;

  • Please can I ask you to pass on my compliments for the first aid training yesterday at Reginald Mitchell Court. Glenn Hulse the trainer presented the course very well, we were all very impressed, and we enjoyed the day which is what matters.

  • Completed a 2 day Paediatric First Aid course today. Glenn was a brilliant trainer and despite the serious nature of the course we still had the odd giggle. I now feel confident enough to deal with an emergency situation however I hope I never have to use my newly learnt skills! Thank you Glenn (and of course Bob)

  • Style of delivery was great, made a difficult subject simple and a "can do approach". When I say simple, I meant it was broken down into common sense - which is what it should be.

  • May I express my sincere thanks in the course taken this week which I earlier today obtained my FAW. From the initial contact with yourselves the service provided was very prompt, efficient and professional without any faults, issues or hiccups which seems to be the norm these days. On to the actual course. The tutors (Brian & Mick Dennant) delivering the training was 1st class in that not only did they keep the flow going but interesting and to the point without any lethargic or boredom points that can arise in some training. They are not only a credit to First Response but also contenders for the stage should they wish a change in career direction as the humour was uplifting and consistent.

  • The course yesterday was the best first aid & manual handling course I have attended in over 35 years and I think this was mainly down to the way it was put over by the tutor.
