Can‌ ‌You‌ ‌Still‌ ‌Use‌ ‌Advanced‌ ‌First‌ ‌Aid‌ ‌Certification‌ ‌After‌ ‌It‌ ‌Expired?‌ ‌


It’s no secret that taking an advanced course can be daunting for most people. After all, the training covers difficult topics and some people don’t want to go through the same lessons again. So does this mean it is okay not to take a refresher course? Will you still be able to use your Advanced First Aid certification after it has expired?

What To Do When Your Advanced First Aid Certification Has Expired

When you complete the Advanced First Aid course, you are immediately qualified for more than just one accreditation. Your Statement of Attainment after completing the course will include the following:

  • Provide Advanced First Aid HLTAID014 qualification
  • Provide First Aid HLTAID011 qualification
  • Provide basic emergency life support HLTAID010 qualification
  • Provide CPR HLTAID009 qualification.

The good news is, your Advanced First Aid certification is valid for three years after you complete the training. Once it has expired, you will need to take a refresher course. The refresher will allow you to learn new procedures and check if your knowledge is still up to date.

So can you still use your Advanced First Aid certification after it has expired? It is best to make sure it is renewed by taking a refresher. This way, you won’t need to worry about practising first aid in the future.
