The HSE recommends that all qualified first aiders should refresh their knowledge and first aid skills every year. We offer an in-house annual skills update course that can be delivered at your premises for up to 12 first aiders.
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.
