First Aid and AED Annual Refresher

The Resuscitation Council UK and the HSE strongly recommend that first aiders receive Annual Refresher training! 


The HSE states that employers "should ensure" that all qualified first aiders “remain competent to perform their role".

Annual Refresher courses provide delegates with the opportunity to refresh their skills and stay confident and up-to-date with the latest first aid techniques.

Whilst Annual Refresher training has been recommended by the HSE for many years, it is now particularly important for first aiders who have not received specific COVID-19 guidance during in the last 12 months.
