Annual First Aid Refresher Course for First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders: Half-day course
Although it is not mandatory, the HSE strongly recommend that HSE qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders undertake an first aid 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. It was felt that this period was too long without any additional training.
A range of subjects are covered including:
Action for vomit
Chain of Survival
Wounds and bleeding
Bandaging and Hygiene
A certificate of attendance will be issued.
It is recommended that no more than 16 participants attend this course. Participants from the age of 14 can attend this course.
