First aid at Work (re-qualification)

Course duration: 2 days

Maximum group size: 12 delegates
Who should attend: The criteria are the same as for the initial three-day course so therefore the course is designed for any persons 18 years and older who want to refresh their skills and knowledge to continue as an accredited First Aider or appointed person

Course Aims

To re-qualify and update existing First Aiders to HSE standards so that they can continue to provide First Aid in the Workplace. The course will enable delegates to summon help and give safe, prompt and effective first aid to a casualty in the workplace following an injury or illness.
