Half-Day First Aid Skills Update

Keep your first aiders' skills in tip-top condition with annual skills updates as recommended by the Resuscitation Council (UK)

Don't let unused skills fade

We all hope that first aid skills aren't called upon very often.  And other than looking after minor injuries, first aiders can often go years between needing to treat a significant injury in the workplace.

Research shows that, because they remain unused, even the best-taught first aid skills fade over time.  Best practice changes over time too. So if your first aiders learned their skills a year or two ago, they may need a top-up before their renewal is due. 

Who is the skills update course suitable for?

This course is particularly suitable if you:

  • have first aiders who qualified more than a year ago, but aren't due a full renewal
  • want to increase awareness of first aid, but don't need extra workplace first aiders
  • need basic life support (BLS) training 

What's covered in the 1/2-day Skills Update Course?

The course runs for around 3 hours, and covers the following content:

  • Content
  • More Information

Basic Life Support Techniques

Attendees will refresh and learn skills in the following areas:

  • Acting safely and promptly in the event of an emergency
  • CPR (theory and practise)
  • Use of an AED (theory and practise)
