There is practical and theory based assessments and continuous evaluation throughout by the tutor. All those deemed to have reached the required standard will be issued with a recognised certificate in First Aid at Work which is valid for 3 years.
There is a need for this to be renewed by attending a 2 day refresher course before the 3 years have expired. Any delegate attending refresher training must have an in-date FAW Certificate to attend this course. If this has expired they will have to attend the initial FAW 3 day course.
The HSE (NI) has strongly recommended that those attending this course attend annual refresher training lasting 2-3 hours. This is not compulsory BUT IS RECOMMENDED by the HSENI. The initial First Aid at Work is over 3 days and re-qualification is over 2 days.
