Have you chosen the right course?

1) Selecting the correct course in the first aid training cycle:

Please use the training cycle to the right to check that you have selected the correct course for your needs.

Please note that some courses are commonly confused, such as the 3 hour annual refresher course and the 2 day requalification course.

If you are unsure about the amount of first aiders required for your workplace or the level of training required, simply take our free First Aid Requirements Calculator.
HSE's recommended sequence of training

2) First Aid at Work Requalifying course:

Those holding a First Aid at Work (FAW) certificate may attend a shorter 2 day Requalification course. Whilst this course shares the same assessment criteria as the 3 day initial course, its content is covered in a significantly shorter timeframe.

To reduce the chance of learners failing to gain their qualification, the HSE recommends it is “prudent” to complete a 3 day course if the previous FAW certificate has expired by more than 1 month.

It should also be noted that once a person’s FAW certificate has expired, they can no longer be counted as a designated first aider in the workplace.
