First Aid at Work Requalification: Glasgow, Edinburgh, Across Scotland and U.K.

<< Back to FAW Re-Qualification Level 6 Scotland SCQF / Level 3 England RQF (2 Day)

This two-day First Aid at Work course is designed for those who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification and are due to expire. Please consider the following rules for attendance:

• A First Aider can renew their FAW qualification by attending a 2-day requalification course within 1 month of the certificate expiry date
• If the First Aider’s certificate has lapsed by more than 1 month, but no longer than 3 months, then the First Aider can requalify by attending a two-day course providing ‘Special considerations’ have been applied Special considerations are:
• A signed letter from the learner’s employer to the provider of the training stating the reasons why 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 OR
• A decision is made by the training provider after discussions with the learner’s employer, or the First Aider, and a decision has been made that their previous experience is sufficient to attend a 2-day course
• If the First Aider has lapsed beyond three months then they must attend a full 3-day FAW course It is important to remember is when the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace which may well leave the employer with a shortfall of trained, certified First Aiders. Therefore, as an employer it would be prudent to arrange their requalification before their certificate expires.


A minimum of 12 hours spread over at least 2 days. It is preferable that the course should run over two consecutive days, but arrangements can be made to spread this over a longer time period if desired, providing it is completed within 7 weeks of the course commencement and each of the sessions last for a minimum of two hours.
