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, you will need to complete a 2 day refresher course prior to the expiry date on your 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. Evidence of this will be required at the time of booking if your current certificate is from a different training provider.
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:
|The role & responsibilities of a first aider||Chest injuries|
|Incident & casualty assessment||Burns & scalds|
|CPR & use of an AED (Defibrillator)||Poisons|
|Recovery position / body check||Asthma, epilepsy & diabetes|
|Choking||Angina, heart attack & stoke|
|Control of bleeding||Fractures, dislocations, sprains & strains|
|Minor injuries & eye injuries||Spinal & head injuries|
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 will, 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 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
