This one-day course will help you meet your regulatory requirements if your risk assessment indicates that first aid training covering emergency protocols only, is sufficient for your workplace. 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.
