To remain a first aider, the appropriate re-qualification course must be completed every three years.

​​​The importance of recording incidents and actions

Basic hygiene and preventing cross-infection

The priorities of first aid

Assessing and managing incidents

Treatment of an unconscious casualty

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)


Wounds, bleeding, and minor injuries




One of our trainers will deliver this course to your premises on a date of your choice. The timing could also be arranged to suit your requirements.


Assessment and Certification


​You will be continually assessed throughout the course by one of our qualified trainers.

To complete this course, you must have a valid Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work certificate.




​The practical elements of this course are essential, as they provide you with vital hands-on experience. You must be physically able to take part in the practical parts of the course.


The HSE requires you to attend the full duration of the course, and candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2) to be eligible for evaluation.


​​On-site training room requirements


​It is recommended that the room size should be approximately 20 x 30 feet for a full 12-person course. The room should be large enough to seat all candidates comfortably in a semicircle formation. The floor space in the centre should be clean and uncluttered, as this will be used for the practical parts of the course. The trainer will also require a flip chart if one is available.
