Annual refresher first aid training

Employers are legally required to ensure their first aiders are competent and maintain their skills throughout the three years in which their certificates are valid.

This three-hour refresher course provides first aiders with an opportunity to practise and update their skills as a qualified first aider, at any time while their first aid certificate is valid.

The HSE strongly recommends that you attend a refresher session once every year during this three year period.

Who should attend?

This course is for people holding a current First aid at work or Emergency first aid at work certificate.

What you will learn?

This session builds on your expertise and confidence by involving you in realistic situations with simulated casualties. Candidates will practise first aid in practical, hands-on scenario sessions.

Course duration

Three hours

Assessment and certification

Continuous assessment by trainer. The course does not renew first aid certificates or extend the validity period of certificates.
