This 2 day (12-hour tutor guided learning) first aid at work requalification course is an intensive course that covers all areas covered on the 3-day first aid at work course but delivered at a much faster pace because you already have the knowledge and skills but you just need to revisit those skills and update them up to current guidelines.
