The First Aid at Work Re-qualification (FAWR) course is designed for people who already hold a full First Aid at Work qualification and whose current certificate is no more than 3 months out of date. A copy of the current (or recently expired) certificate must be provided prior to the course.
Blended Learning First Aid Requalification courses still require 12 hours of contact time with the first 6 being done on-line at your own pace with plenty of opportunity to go back to review elements and refresh your knowledge.
The second 6 hours (plus breaks) is taught as a group in-class where the practical elements are done and the assessments take place.
The in-class day can be split into two ½ days (for an extra charge) and the whole course must be completed within 10 weeks of the start of the on-line elements.
Assessment is in the form of practical exercises and a straightforward multiple choice paper. Candidates must pass both elements to qualify.
Please note that candidates must be able to perform exercises at floor level where required. It is a requirement of all regulated courses that the candidate should be able to communicate effectively with Emergency Services and, although this is not assessed formally, your instructor must be satisfied that this is the case. As such, all the question papers are in English and a reader will be provided if candidates have literacy concerns or learning difficulties.
Once qualified, the certificate is valid for 3 years, at the end of which candidates will need to attend a two-day requalification course (provided this is done within 3 months of the expiry of their current certificate). It is recommended by HSE that all first aiders should do an annual 3 hour refresher course to keep their skills up-to-date.
We book a maximum of 12 people per trainer. Larger groups can be accommodated with additional trainers.
To maintain as safe a training environment as practical all shared training equipment is thoroughly sanitised before each course including changing of manikin lungs. Other items such as training dressings are supplied new for every course.
When teaching at your premises we will follow your Covid Safety protocols, only requesting that masks and gloves are worn for any close contact exercises. On our open or public courses we do require masks to be worn unless we are made aware of a valid medical exemption in advance. When this is the case, proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken in the preceding 24 hours will be required.

Alternatively we run regular open Hastings, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells at a charge of £190.00 per person.
Please note that transport charges for off-shore courses will be charged at cost.
The course covers the same subject matter as the full 3 day course but moves at a faster pace given the existing knowledge base of the attendees.
