    Your company first aid risk assessment & company policy will determine the level of first aid assistance required however, the HSE has published some guidance.

  • Do I need to do a full first aid course again once my certificate runs out?

    When the Emergency First Aid at work certificate runs out, renewing it would mean completing the same 1 day course. However, when the 3 day First Aid at work certificate runs out, a delegate can complete the 2 day First Aid at work requalification, providing that they complete this course no longer than 28 days after their certificate has expired.
