First Aid Refresher Course

First Aid at Work Refresher Course

For First Aiders in the workplace, this is the two-day refresher course which much be taken before your current certificate expires, in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for those who have previously completed a First Aid at Work Certification and are within their three years certification period.


You must be physically able to carry out the CPR and recovery position. We use an audio and visual presentation, with handouts and practical activities.
