FIRST AID ANNUAL REFRESHER

Under the current HSE guidelines it is “strongly recommended” that first aid trained staff attend a half-day update every twelve months – before completing full re-qualification training at the three year point.

We are able to offer a half-day annual refresher course that is suitable for those staff who have completed either the three-day First Aid at Work or the one-day Emergency First Aid at Work courses.
