First Aid at Work (FAW) Renewal

Edenfield » Training » First Aid » First Aid at Work (FAW) Renewal

This course is for holders of a current First Aid at Work qualification which is due to expire, or where candidates would like to refresh and update their first aid aid knowledge, and revalidate their qualification for a further three years.

Please note that whilst individuals have up to one month following the expiry of their First Aid at Work certificate to renew via this course, as soon as their qualification expires they can no longer be considered a First Aider in the workplace until it is renewed. It is therefore advised that requalification is undertaken prior to expiry.

Qualification details and validity

The First Aid at Work (England, Wales, Northern Ireland RQF level 3 / Scotland SCQG level 6) is valid for three years. This course renews existing qualifications and consists of 12 contact hours, including of practical and theoretical activities.

Assessment and certification

Assessment is ongoing by the instructor, along with a multiple choice question paper after each day, and a three-year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.

Age restrictions and group sizes

A maximum of 12 learners are allowed per instructor and must be a minimum of 14 years of age. An individual cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The qualification will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
