The certificate is valid for 3 years and before the expiry date first aiders will need to undertake a First Aid At Work Re-qualification course to obtain another 3 year certificate.
Cognet can provide a choice of certification for this course. Firstly we offer our own certificates which are approved by the First Aid Industry Body which reflects that we have held continuous Health and Safety Executive approval to deliver First Aid at Work Training since 1992 until de-regulation by the Government in October 2013.
In addition for those requiring a Level 3 Ofqual regulated course we are able to provide assessment and certification through AoFAQ
