First Aid at Work certificates…
are valid for 3 years from the date of qualification. Retraining (requalification) should be completed and passed before the existing certificate expires.
If the requalification is completed within 3 months in advance of the expiry date, the new certificate will take effect from the date of expiry of the old one. If taken earlier than 3 months prior to expiry, the new certificate will take effect from the date of successful completion of the course.
If the requalification has not been completed within 28 days beyond the expiry of the old certificate, a full First Aid at Work course will need to be undertaken in order to be re-established as a first aider.
