Course Aims

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) "strongly recommend" an annual half day refresher for existing first aiders to maintain their levels of knowledge and competence. The First Aid at Work refresher is run over half-a-day and includes both theory and practical sessions; the course is conducted in a relaxed environment with the focus on building knowledge and confidence.

Suitable for

First aiders who hold a current three year First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work certificate (awarded by any training provider), and who would benefit from practising and refreshing their skills between recertifications.

Course Length

1/2 day (4 hours, either AM or PM)

Pre-requisites

This is aimed at existing first aiders, and is not intended for those needing to train in first aid for the first time.

Temporary physical impairment - In situations where employers inform
training providers that an employee attending an FAW / EFAW course has a
temporary physical impairment, it may be sensible to advise them to defer
training until the individual is fit. If this is not possible and the student
has a temporary physical impairment, affecting for example mobility, a training
provider can temporarily accommodate this during training. For example, a knee
injury may prevent CPR training as the person is unable to kneel on the floor,
so the training could be delivered at waist height. However, the final
assessment must still be conducted at floor level. If you have any queries do contact us for advice.

Certification

Trainees attending our First Aid courses are trained and assessed by expert trainer/assessors throughout the course. Assessment is made through observation along with some written exercises. Successful trainees will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance.
