My First Aid Certificate Expired On… Can I Still Do An Update (Refresher) Course?

When you train with us, there is no pre-course learning requirements for these courses so you can just turn up and attend the face-to-face training regardless of how long ago you did your last course.

For the Child Care  First Aid course, if your certificate has expired you will just need to complete the Full Course which includes a pre-course learning module. We will email you this after you enrol online.

Does It Matter If I Did My Previous Certificate Through Another Training Provider?

Not at all. All previous nationally recognised First Aid qualifications that are still current (haven’t expired) will be accepted, regardless of the organisation you trained with last.

Why Do I Need To Renew My First Aid Certificate?

It is a recommendation by the Code of Practice: First Aid in the Workplace (a code to guide workplaces in meeting the requirements of the Work Health and Safety Act and the Work Health and Safety Regulation) that workplace first aiders renew their first aid qualification every three years and their CPR qualification annually. This is to allow first aiders to refresh their first aid knowledge and skills and to confirm their competence to provide first aid.
