This course has been designed and developed to allow existing First Aiders to re-qualify and continue to operate as a First Aider for a further 3 years.
It is a mandatory requirement that to continue as a first aider, first aiders will need to complete a 2 day refresher course prior to the expiry date on their certificate. The programme offers both the ability and knowledge to deal with first aid provision in the workplace.
It meets the standards required to help comply with Health and Safety (First aid) Regulations.
The only entry requirement for this programme is that learners must hold a current and valid first aid certificate at the time of enrolling on the programme.
The Centre delivers a number of refresher programmes throughout the year to ensure that learners do not miss the opportunity to re-train in this field.
Course Aims & Outline:
The programme will teach and train candidates to deal with the following first aid topics:
|First Aid revision: Your role & function||Q&A Sessions|
|New methods and changes in the Law||Record Keeping|
|The First Aid at Work Regulations||CPR / Safe use of an AED (defibrillator)|
|Resuscitation and patient management||Trauma and role play|
|Bleeding control and hygiene||Bone, muscle and joint injuries|
|Fracture treatment and immobilisation||Burns and scalds|
|Dealing with emergencies and incidents||Chest pains (including heart attack)|
|Videos and refreshment||Review and test (Assessment)|
This programme has a packed schedule, delivered over a two day period. The programme is accredited and approved by Qualsafe, the awarding organisation for First Aid training. Our tutors are industry specialists with decades of first aid experience. The course is classroom based and includes ‘first aid simulation’ (practical, hands on examples of how to deal with a variety of first aid situations). This may, from time to time, involve learners undertaking role play with other learners.
The programme is assessed throughout, using a range of ongoing assessment methods. In addition, there are 2 multi-choice assessments that learners need to achieve to complete the course.
• “The course has been good and fun. Phil is a top bloke with a lot of knowledge & experience. He has great tales from his fire days that served a lot of interest and relevance to the course. Having returned to the centre for many refresher courses, I have great respect for Phil.” Wesley, Dec 16
• “The course was very good, the new updates will be handy for future reference. Phil was very good with a good pace & learning style. One of the best first aid courses I have attended in 22 years. Thank you!” Gareth, Oct 16
This programme runs for 2 days, starting at 09.00am and finishing at 4.30pm. Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day for all learners. We advise candidates to wear comfortable clothing for the programme as role play may require work on the floor.
