First aid at Work Refresher
4 hours

Annual Basic Skills Refresher Training is strongly recommended by the Health and safety Executive for first aiders who hold a 3 day First Aid at Work, 2 day First Aid at Work Requalification or a 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work qualification. This can also be taught as a Basic Life Support course.

The First Aid at Work Refresher course is recommended by the HSE for all workplace First Aiders in order to keep up to date with any changes to protocols and regulations as well as minimise skills degradation that inevitably happen over time.

First Aid at Work Refresher Training Course Syllabus:

Candidates should be able to demonstrate their competency in:

  • Assessing a situation to act safely, promptly and effectively in any emergency
  • Unconscious casualty management including Epilepsy
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for a non-breathing casualty
  • Choking first aid for a casualty with a blocked airway
  • Wounded and bleeding first aid for a casualty who has been injured
  • Shock (Hypovolemic) recognition and treatment

If required we can discuss any relevant first aid updates including legislation and updated best practices


Our Instructors come from a range of professional and voluntary backgrounds such as:

  • emergency services (ambulance, police and fire service)
  • military (medics)
  • outdoor professionals (Mountain leaders)
  • Community Responders
  • Experienced First Aiders

We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations.


Our training is very practical and hands on. We do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management.


There are no formal prerequisites to attend this course although clearly the student must hold a First Aid Certificate of some sort. The minimum age to attend is 14 and you must be reasonably fit and strong due to the physical nature of the training.

Basic written and verbal English comprehension is required. To pass you must be able to demonstrate practical competence.

If you have any disabilities please contact us beforehand to discuss how we might be able to support you.


All candidates must attend the full ½ day (4 hours) to qualify. Each candidate is continually assessed throughout.


Our First Aid at Work Refresher course certificate is valid for 1 year. It can be revalidated by completing a First Aid at Work Refresher course within 12 months.


Our awarding body for First Aid at Work Refresher qualifications is either through Pro Trainings or ITC.

ITC First is authorised and regulated by Ofqual and the SQA.

Pro Trainings Authorises our Qualifications and can also provide Regulated Certificates through TQUK
