HSE recommended First Aid Refresher

"This was a really useful course, definitely the most interesting first aid course due to the personality and personal anecdotes added to the presentation, so thank you."

Course Aims

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) "strongly recommend" an annual half day refresher for existing first aiders.

Suitable for

First aiders who hold a current three year First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work certificate and would benefit from practising and refreshing their skills between certificates.

Course Length

1/2 day


This is aimed at existing first aiders and is not intended for those needing to train in first aid for the first time.

Temporary physical impairment - In situations where employers inform
training providers that an employee attending an FAW / EFAW course has a
temporary physical impairment, it may be sensible to advise them to defer
training until the individual is fit. If this is not possible and the student
has a temporary physical impairment, affecting for example mobility, a training
provider can temporarily accommodate this during training. For example, a knee
injury may prevent CPR training as the person is unable to kneel on the floor,
so the training could be delivered at waist height. However, the final
assessment must still be conducted at floor level. If you have any queries do contact us for advice.


Delegates will be awarded a certificate in attendance from Norvic Training
