What is 2 day First Aid requalification course?
Our 2 day First Aid requalification course is a condensed version of the 3 day First Aid at Work course whereby we cover all topics in 2 days rather than 3. Only students who hold a current 3 day First Aid at Work certificate or a certificate that hasn’t expired by more than 28 days can attend.
Don’t get confused between a first aid refresher and a re-qualification. Please note the major differences between the First Aid refresher and First Aid re-qualification courses.
Who is it for?
This course is specifically designed for those wishing to renew their current 3 day First Aid at work certificate*.
*Please be aware there have been some changes to the 2 day re-qualification First Aid at Work regulations.
- If your certificate has expired by less than 28 days – . You may renew your First Aid at Work certificate by completing our 2-day first aid re-qualification course. Go ahead and pick a course that suits you or “request a course”.
- If your certificate has expired by more than 28 days. If your First Aid at Work certificate has expired by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months you may still have the opportunity to attend this course and save yourself a day in the classroom.
We would need a signed letter from your company outlining why you are experienced enough to attend a 2-day course and do not require a full 3-day FAW course. Perhaps you have dealt with many First Aid situations during the last 3 years or perhaps this is your 11th First Aid course and you are supremely confident in your ability.
If your 2 day First Aid at Work course certificate has expired by more than 3 months, you must attend a full 3-day First Aid at Work course.

Our 2 day First Aid re-qualification course lasts 12 hours over 2 days. Some home learning is required at the end of day 1.
