First Aid Refresher

The HSE recommends that all qualified first aiders undertake an annual refresher course if their qualification lasts for more than 12 months, for example the 3-year First Aid at Work course. This course fulfils the requirements for the annual refresher by taking qualified staff through the full range of topics.
