Course description

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.

The Health and Safety Executive strongly recommends that first aiders 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.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
