First aid at work (Annual refresher)

First Aid at Work (Annual refresher)

Course overview

Our half day First aid at work annual refresher course aims to refresh the skills and knowledge of first aiders holding an existing and in-date First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work certificate. These annual refresher courses are strongly recommended by the Health and Safety Executive.

The course covers the following topics: 

  • Adult resuscitation (CPR)
  • Communication and casualty care
  • Primary survey
  • Seizures
  • Severe bleeding
  • Shock
  • Unresponsive adult

Who is this course for?

This course is for qualified first aiders with in-date certificates who would like to refresh their skills and knowledge to stay current. Students will be asked to bring their existing certificates to the course.

If you need to requalify a certificate because it is due to expire please see our First Aid at Work (Requalification) course instead.


Our refresher course is 3 hours, excluding breaks, over half a day. 

Courses usually assemble ready to begin at 9am and finish around 1pm with a break mid morning. Students must attend the whole course to be able to receive their certificate. 


When you successfully complete a course you will be sent a secure PDF certificate to print and proudly display in your workplace. 

We can also provide full colour, hard copy certificates with industry-leading security features or credit card style plastic certificates on request. Additional charges apply, please contact us for more details.  

Certificates are valid for one year. It is recommended to complete this training annually until the first certificate expires, at which point a requalification course will be needed.

What's included in the price?

  • Registration on your course
  • A full colour course book and training pack to practice your new skills
  • A secure, printable PDF certificate on completion
  • Refreshments throughout the day – tea, coffee and snacks
