HSE guidelines state that employers should ensure their first aiders remain competent to perform their role. As such, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training to practise their skills and update their knowledge on the latest first aid procedures.
This First Aid qualification is specifically designed to allow first aiders to update their first aid skills yearly, until requalification training is required.
This course is designed for those who have a specific interest or responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities to provide basic life support when dealing with an emergency situation which may involve using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
