When it comes to sourcing a first aid at work requalification course, St John Ambulance Cymru is the leading training provider in Wales. In the UK, St John Ambulance is one of the voluntary aid societies (VAS) who are recognised by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) as standard setters for first aid training in accordance with the Health and Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981. We don't require external accreditation through an Awarding Organisation.

According to the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, first aider certificates cannot have expired and must be in-date. That's why it's really important that before your certificate expires that you take our first aid at work requalification course. If your certificate is out of date, then you can no longer be a first aider for your place of work. Employers have a duty of care to ensure that there are always people qualified to deliver first aid on-site should it a situation require it, so it is vital that first aid qualifications don't lapse. Once you complete this requalification course successfully, your certificate will be valid for a further 3 years and you can remain a qualified first aider for your workplace.

If an accident happens in the workplace, then first aid skills can be the difference between life and death. If it has been 3 years since your first aid course and you have not needed to use your training very much, then this requalification course is the perfect opportunity to stop the skills fade and have the chance again to practice and become re-acquainted with essential emergency first aid knowledge. Did you know that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that first aiders complete annual skills update training in the years between qualification? This ensures that your first aid training remains up-to-date and that you feel confident enough to act in an emergency. If this is what you are looking for, then we also offer a First Aid at Work Update course, which you can take in the years between obtaining your certificate and needing to requalify.

No, there is not. Once your certificate expires, you will no longer be a qualified first aider for your workplace. If this happens, then you will need to take our First Aid at Work 3-Day course to become a certified first aider again.

We are proud to teach our suite of courses regularly at our training centres across Wales. For six or more employees we can also train on-site at your business premises.
