Annual Refresher in First Aid & Defibrillator (AED) Training

This half-day first aid refresher course updates the skills previously gained in a First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) training course to maintain a sharp skillset.

It’s also bundled with vital defibrillator (AED) training to give delegates even more valuable skills and potentially save more lives.

Once your colleagues have a 3 year certificate in First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work, the Health & Safety Executive recommends yearly refresher courses which refresh their skills. This not only ensures that you abide by best practices as an employer, but it also ensures that your colleagues’ first aid skills are still fresh in their minds and can be used with confidence in the event of an emergency.

After all, with a 3 year gap in between the primary courses, it is all too easy to forget or lose confidence in vital first aid skills which could save lives.

The first aid refresher course is designed to refresh all of the skills found in any standard FAW or EFAW course. It also includes defibrillator (AED) training to teach learners how to swiftly use the device in a life threatening situation. Previous defibrillator training is not required, allowing existing first aiders to expand their skill set with valuable AED training.

Course Certificate

Upon successful completion of the first aid refresher course, each learner will receive an HSE approved annual refresher in first aid certificate which is valid for 1 year.
