First Aid at Work Re-qualification

First Aid at Work Training

 

This two-day course is suitable for people aged 16+ who wish to follow the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) recommendation that first aiders have annual refresher training. The aim is to maintain their skills and keep up to date with any changes which may happen between completing a first aid at work course and re-qualifying three years later. It is designed for anyone who wishes to refresh their existing first aid at work training. The HSE strongly recommends that all first aiders holding a valid first aid at work or emergency first aid at work certificate, complete an annual skills update.

This course must be completed before the expiry of the 3-year validity of the First Aid at Work qualification, otherwise the full 3-day course must be completed.

Course dates will be published once the country is operational. In the meantime if you wish to register your interest or find out more Contact Us or call on 01793 852951.
