Our 12 hour First Aid at Work Level 3 Requalifying Course is specifically designed to allow first aiders to renew their first aid at work qualification when their certificate is due to expire. Please consider the following rule for attendance. A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending our 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3 course, if it’s within 1 month past the expiry date. If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 1 month then they must attend a full First Aid at Work Level 3 course. The important thing to remember is that as soon as 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 First Aiders.
This is a 12 hour course which we generally run over 2 days. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to practise essential first aid procedures, as well as learn the latest techniques for dealing with emergency situations and managing injuries and illnesses in the workplace. What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes.

Upon successful completion, attendees will be awarded a nationally recognised Ofqual regulated certificate valid for 3 years that fully meets Ofsted requirements and will receive a First Aid at Work handbook to keep for future reference. Attendees of this course will also have exclusive free access to our GEM First Aid annual refresher video training, presented by our GEM trainers, each year until certificate renewal is needed in 3 years’ time.

COVID-19 Course Information
We want to reassure all delegates of our First Aid public courses during this current period of restriction lifting, before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of yourself and others to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. The health and well-being of our delegates and dedicated team will be a priority, which is why our upcoming public courses will be run in a COVID secure training venue with hand sanitisation stations, reduced attendee numbers and social distancing measures in place. We want to reassure all delegates before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of attendees on our courses to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. We have always maintained the highest standards of cleanliness with all our training equipment, but in addition to our usual hygiene processes which include regularly using disinfectant wipes and changing manikin lungs, we are also now giving all delegates their own training pack. Included in this pack will be a brand new & sealed face shield, gloves, bandages, a face mask for use during the training, as well as First Aid handbook for future reference.
A First Aider can renew their First Aid at Work qualification by attending our First Aid at Work Requalification Level 3 course, if it’s within 1 month past the expiry date. If the First Aider has lapsed beyond 1 month then they must attend a full First Aid at Work Level 3 course (if lapsed, delegates can not be counted as a First Aider until requalification).
This 6 hour face-to-face session follows 6 hours of Video Training delivered by our own GEM Trainers. This will be the first part of your First Aid training which will need to be completed before you attend your chosen 6 hour face to face training session. Our video training course is intended to give you an introduction into the course which will be built on when you attend your face to face session.
