Upon successful completion of this training course, delegates will receive a St John Ambulance Cymru certificate, valid for 3 years. This will enable you to remain a qualified workplace first aider for a further three years.

When it comes to sourcing a training provider, 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. If your certificate is out of date, then you can no longer be a first aider for your place of work.

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 at work course and you have not needed to administer first aid very much, then this 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? If a refresher course is what you are looking for, then we also offer first aid at work refresher training.

Yes, the requalification course content is regularly updated to incorporate any changes or updates in regulations prescribed by the first aid industry body. This ensures that participants are well-informed about the latest guidelines, especially in the context of handling an emergency first aid situation.

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

This course ensures alignment with the latest health and safety regulations, including the current first aid regulation and HSE first aid standards. By providing updated information on best practices and incorporating any relevant changes in protocols, the course ensures that participants maintain valid first aid certification.

We teach this first aid training course at our centres conveniently located across Wales. If you have six or more employees that need to take this training, then one of our expert trainers will come to your business to teach the course, minimising your costs and time of employees out of office.
