Refresher & Re-qualification Courses

Our annual refresher courses are not only designed to refresh a candidate on previous skills they have learnt on a full course, but to increase their confidence when dealing with a potentially traumatic situation.

This three-hour practical 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.

This session builds on your expertise and confidence by involving you in realistic situations with simulated casualties. Candidates will practise first aid in practical, hands-on scenario sessions. Any protocol updates or changes in first aid treatments will be covered as and when they occur.

First Aid at Work (RQF) - Annual Re-qualification


The First Aid At Work Re-qualification course is for those who are currently qualified as a First Aider (FAW) and wish to continue as an approved First Aider for another 3 years. This course covers all aspects of basic life support along with a vast range of First Aid conditions.


If your certificate has expired you are still able to attend this course, but the HSE recommends you attend the First Aid at Work (3 day course) if more than a month has elapsed since expiry. Please note that the re-qualification course is an intensive course with very little practice time and designed for people whose certificate is still in date. If you do decide to attend the re-qualification course you will need to work at the pace of the course.
