This course covers a range of topics from minor injuries and illness to serious life-threatening health conditions, where appropriate first aid is required. It also explains the roles and responsibilities of a first aider and how to safely assess a scene, and record the accident or incident.

First Aid Blended Requalification

The First Aid Requalification course is designed to update first aid skills for those who need to renew their expiring first aid at work certificate every three years.

Throughout this course, you will learn many crucial skills needed to fill the role of a first aider in a medium to higher-risk workplace environment; These are all covered over a 3-day period. The certificate awarded at the end of the course is valid for three years before a requalification course is required.
