First Aid at Work (Requalification)
Qualification accreditation number: 603/2453/3
Description: This qualification is for those undertaking the role of a first aider in the workplace.
Our QNUK Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) has been developed in conjunction with other AOs and supports employers to meet their requirements under Health and Safety (First-aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982.
During the current COVID19 pandemic we have implemented a number of new measures to ensure that the training we conduct is in line with governmental guidelines. You can learn more here.
If your First Aid at Work qualification is coming up for renewal in the near future then this First Aid at Work (Re-Qualification course) is the course you need to re-qualify for your first aid qualification. If your qualification has expired by more than 30 days then you will have to do the 3 days first aid at work course again.
You must be in possession of an in-date First Aid at Work Certificate.
First aid at work requalification course is an intensive course 2 days (12 guided learning hours) that covers all areas the first aider covered on the 3-day first aid at work course.
This course is delivered at a much faster pace because the first aider already has the knowledge and skills but will revisit these skills and update them up to current guidelines.
First aiders will revisit how to safely manage an unconscious casualty and how to give essential lifesaving CPR to a casualty who has stopped breathing and revisiting how to safely and competently use an AED too.
Delegates will also be updating their skills on how to safely treat a casualty who has a head, neck, or spinal injury, also how to provide treatment to a casualty who is choking, or maybe suffering from anaphylactic shock, they may be having an asthma attack, or having a convulsive seizure.
Also re-learning how best to provide assistance and treatment for minor burns, scalds, bleeds, wounds, broken bones, ligament injuries, poisoning, eye injuries, and lots more on this 2 days (12 guided learning hours) first aid at work re-qualification course.
