What can I do to refresh my skills before I attend my next training course?

Our friends at St John Ambulance in England are giving first aiders free access to their online e-learning First Aid at Work annual update course for a limited time.

The e-learning course will help first aiders keep on top of their first aid skills, refresh their knowledge either in the workplace or at home until our face-to-face training courses resume.

Please note: The e-learning course doesn't replace or update your current qualification. You will still need to complete your requalification course for a new and valid certificate.
