How long do I have to wait for my results/certificate?

  • Tyro Training Certificate – Certificates will be presented to delegates at the end of the course. Where this is not possible, certificates will be sent by post to the named learner at the address of the person who made the booking within 2 weeks. E-Certificates are also available.
  • HABC (Highfield) – Level 2 HABC certificates generally take 2-3 weeks to arrive with you, Level 3 certificates sometimes take a little bit longer and can be expected to arrive within 2-6 weeks.

Which First Aid course do I need to attend?

Because the First Aid course that you require is dependent on the circumstances within your workplace, we are not allowed to directly advise which course it is that you should be attending. The First Aid section of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website has all the information you need to help you determine which First Aid course you require.

The HSE website breaks it down for you so that you know your role whether you are an employer, an employee or the designated first aider.

Do I need to do a Level 2 qualification before a Level 3?

For some courses you will be able to study the level appropriate to your job role and experience, which ,may mean you can complete a level 3 qualification before achieving a level 2. However some other courses require a prerequisite to be achieved before you can progress onto a higher level qualification. These vary across courses and in order to understand which applies to the course specific to your interest, a member of our team will be able to help.
