First Aid Annual Refresher – Description

This course is a First Aid Annual Refresher for qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders

Although it is not mandatory, the HSE strongly recommend that qualified First Aider’s and Emergency First Aider’s undertake an annual refresher course in order to keep their skills up-to-date and refreshed.

The qualification period for both groups of First Aiders is 3-years. Techniques and protocols can change rapidly though. As a result, it is felt that the 3 year certification period is too long without any additional training.

Duration

A minimum of 3 hours, consisting of theoretical and practical activities.
