Entry requirements
Learners must be at least 14 years old on the first day of the training and be able to perform practical tasks
at floor level. There are no other formal entry requirements but we strongly recommend that Learners have a
minimum of Level 1 in literacy and numeracy or equivalent.

Other course requirements
Due to the practical nature of this course, Learners should wear appropriate clothing and footwear, e.g.
trousers and flat footwear.
The Qualsafe Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) may be used towards other qualifications at the same
and higher level, plus aid career progression in a relevant profession.

Requalification requirements
This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The Learner needs to retake the qualification before the
certificate expiry date to remain qualified.

It is possible to reduce GLH when requalifying and attend a 12-hour FAW requalifying course if Learners produce
their current or previous, recently expired, FAW certificate. The certificate should be in a format as accepted by
the HSE. Requalification training should be delivered in no less than 12 hours (2 days) excluding breaks.
