The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees who are injured or become ill at work. This First Aid at Work Refresher training course, also known as First Aid at Work Requalification, is suitable for first aiders who need to renew their First Aid at Work certificate.
Designed for those who have completed a 3-Day First Aid at Work training course and needs to renew their first aid skill set, knowledge, and certification. This refresher course lasts 2 days and secures the learner's qualification for a further three years before the course will need to be retaken. It covers all the fundamental skills and information needed including the role of the first aider, CPR, how to treat injuries and illnesses, and how to report and record injuries.
Our First Aid at Work Refresher course is available as blended learning, so you can safely complete the first part of this course online and the other face-to-face at a more convenient time. Please note, blended learning is an accepted method for workplace first aid training.
The HSE strongly recommends that you renew and requalify your certificate within a month of your certificate expiring. If it has already been a month since it has expired, you should attend the 3-Day First Aid at Work course. You can view it here.

Looking for further information on First Aid at Work Refresher/Requalification? We’ve put together the most common questions our first aid training specialists get asked.
A First Aid at Work Refresher course, also known as a First Aid at Work Requalification, is a 2-day training course that updates the first aid knowledge and skills of those that need to renew their First Aid at Work certificate in order to obtain another three-year certificate.
It's designed to keep your first aiders up to date with any new legislation, procedures, first aid skills and knowledge, including injuries, CPR, AED and casualties.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommends that you requalify or refresh your first aid at work training within a month of your certificate expiring. This is normally every three years (from when you got your first 3-Day First Aid at Work certificate). Some high hazard environments prefer to renew and refresh their first aid certificate more often than this, but for most of us, three years is sufficient. If the certificate has expired and isn't refreshed, the first aider will no longer be considered to be competent to act as a workplace first aider.
Refreshing your first aid work training will help first-aiders maintain their basic skills, stay up to date with legal changes and retain their confidence to act in an emergency. Our First Aid at Work Refresher training does just that and more, so if this is what you're looking for, please get in touch with one of our friendly training specialists.
