No, the training can be undertaken on separate days, though the full course content must be undertaken within 9 weeks of commencement (including the commencement date). However, we do encore people to undertake the course on 3 consecutive days to make for easier learning.
How long will my accreditation last?

Can you fail a First Aid at Work course?
Yes, but don’t worry it’s very unlikely. It’s very rare that people fail the training, our expert trainers recognise when someone may be having difficulty and provide additional support to ensure, wherever possible, that delegates leave with the skills, ability and confidence to meet the accreditation requirements.
Will I have my own manikin during the first aid training?
Yes, every individual attending one of our courses will have sole use of a manikin for the duration of their training.
Will there be an exam at the end of the course?

What happens if I do not successfully complete the course?
If you are unable to successfully complete their training either through absence or being unable to meet the assessment criteria, our trainers will provide additional support to coach and assist individuals to achieve the desired standards, though this may incur additional costs.
When will I receive my accreditation/certification?
Your qualification is valid from the moment you complete the course and are signed off by the trainer. Certification is sent from the awarding body and normally arrives 2-3 weeks following completion of the course.
