FIRST AID AT WORK ANNUAL REFRESHER COURSES

Course Dates: No dates currently in the diary
Trainers: View the trainers offering this course type »

The HSE strongly recommends that first-aiders should undertake annual refresher training during any three-year certification period of an Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) or First Aid at Work (FAW) course. Although this is not mandatory, this course will help qualified first-aiders maintain their basic skills & keep up-to-date with any changes to first-aid procedures.

The Resuscitation Council UK also recommends that frequent ‘low-dose’ training may be a beneficial method for regular retraining & knowledge retention.

This three-hour course covers the key First Aid emergencies enabling all participants to deal with emergency situations with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. In addition, this course will include any key changes that may have arisen since their last training course.

What our customers think of this course type:

This course was very enjoyable as well as being informative. Ross' teaching style was excellent and he was able to deliver basic information and answer questions without being condescending or patronising. There was a good ratio of practical to theory, making sure that we did not feel 'talked at' too much.
