Ongoing practical assessments and practical written test ensures delegates receive a certificate which complies with all HSE guidelines valid for 3 years. At the end of the three years they will need to sit the requalification course - if taken before the expiry of the old certificate (issued by us) is 2 days - a copy of the previous certificate is needed to validate this. If the certificate has expired the full 3 day course must be taken.

Be prepared - to help save a life in your family or in another
