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.

Covid-19: Updated Training Guidance


Whilst the restrictions and guidelines vary between each nation, the requirements for training are common in each, so our guidance at present for the whole of the UK is for training to only go ahead when it is deemed essential and cannot be delayed. During the lockdown many businesses are still operating and are required to meet the HSE requirements in respect of first aid and other training, to allow them to continue to operate. Where training is deemed essential then it can go ahead, but if it can be delayed then it should be until safe to do so. The decision as to whether training is essential must be employer led and where training does go ahead, training providers must adhere to the FAA COVID-19 classroom requirements (available on request).




What can I expect from this course?


Our training courses provide clear evidence to employers, patients and people who receive care and support that the health or social care support worker in front of them has been assessed against a specific set of standards and has demonstrated they have the skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure that they provide compassionate and high quality care and support.
