First Aid at Work Annual Update

Research shows that 'skills fade' is a significant issue for workplace first aiders. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommends that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training during any three-year certification period.

Refresher training allows you to practice and update your knowledge and skills at any time during your three year period as a qualified first aider.

Who is it for?

People holding a current First Aid at Work (3-day) or Emergency First Aid at Work (1-day) certificate.

What will you learn?

You'll build on your current expertise and confidence by getting involved in practical, hands-on scenario sessions, including:

  • Role of the first aider
  • Managing an emergency
  • Bleeding
  • Resuscitation (CPR) - including the use of an AED
  • Seizures
  • Shock
