Our First aid at work requalification course is delivered by our in-house qualified and experienced instructors.
Goldcross Training runs the FAW-R, 2-day course frequently to meet the needs of its delegates. We understand that many individuals cannot afford to take time off during the week and for this reason you will find this first aid at work three-day course runs both during the week and at weekends.
First Aid at Work Training Courses can be undertaken at one of our Training Centre’s throughout Central & South East England and we are able to provide for in-house courses at your organisation’s venue should that be preferable.
Who is the First Aid Requalification Course Aimed at?
First Aid Requalification courses are designed for individuals who have already undertaken a First Aid at Work course and who operate in workplaces that fall into a higher risk category such as: construction, engineering, manufacturing, chemicals, warehousing, etc and for any workplace where employees may be at risk of underlying health conditions i.e. diabetes, anaphylaxis, high blood pressure, heart problems, etc.
Certificates for the purposes of first aid at work last for three years. Before their certificates expire, first-aiders will need to undertake a requalification course as appropriate, to obtain another three-year certificate.
