I already have a First Aid at Work qualification and wish to renew (re-qualifier)

If you already hold your First Aid at Work qualification and wish to renew it, there is a two day course available. You must send in a copy of your existing current FAW certificate which must not have expired. If it has expired you are allowed a 28 day grace period. On the day of the course, you must bring your old first aid certificate, ideally this must not have expired, however there is a 28 day grace period.

This means that you may book a refresher course in that 28 day period, but you are not allowed to practice as an official first aider during that time. If it has expired past the 28 day period then you need to attend the full three day course, and you are not covered as a first aider until you have completed the course.
