  • Who is this course for and what will I study?

    Please consider the following rules for attendance:

    • A First Aider can renew their FAW qualification by attending a 2 day requalification course without question, if it's within 1 month of the expiry date.
    • If the First Aider has lapsed by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months, then the First Aider can requalify by attending a 2 day course providing 'special considerations' have been applied

    Special considerations are:

    A signed letter from the employer to the provider of the training stating that in their opinion, the First Aider is suitably experienced to attend a 2 day course and does not require a full 3 day FAW course.
