Stay up to date with our annual refresher courses

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that first aiders update their skills once a year, between the time that they qualify as a first aider and requalify three years later (when their first aid at work certificate expires). 

We support this recommendation by offering first aid refresher courses, which are available as:

  • online learning
    • request an e-learning licence and learn online in your own time, at work or at home
    • easy-to-use format with interactive quizzes and video content
    • save time and money on travel costs
  • face-to-face training

It's our way of helping you maintain your skills and confidence, so you're always prepared to act in case of an emergency. 

You'll still need to requalify every three years by taking a first aid at work requalification course, which is required to renew your first aid at work certificate and continue to act as a workplace first aider.

Call 0844 871 8000 or email to find out more about how we can help you refresh your first aid skills.
