The qualification is valid for three years from the date of achievement. Learners will need to complete the full course again to requalify for a further three years. It should be noted that if the qualification expires a person is no longer considered competent to act as a first aider in the workplace.
The assessment is carried out through practical demonstration, oral questioning and a written assessment paper. Scenarios will be set to allow learners to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have gained. Numbers A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 16 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A learner cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the person is suitable for that role
