Each attendee is independently examined on the final afternoon of the course. Upon successful completion, certification is valid for three years. If you have previously completed the full 3-day First Aid at Work Course and your certificate is in date or within 28 days after the expiry date you may wish to consider the 2-day requalification course. Under the current guidelines, it is 'strongly recommended' that first aid trained staff attend a half-day update every 12 months - before completing full re-qualification training at the 3-year point.
Each learner will also receive a comprehensive First Aid Manual.
