Refresher Courses (3 hour)

4 to 12 people £20.00 pp

 

The annual refresher course is a highly recommended way of keeping up your skills if you are a First Aider at Work. The non-certificated course is designed to make the transition from a 3 day FAW to a 2 day FAW(R) more streamlined given the 3 year gap between qualifications. We have now extended the refresher course idea to be open for Paediatric qualification too. The course covers all the assessable parts of the FAW model, ie: CPR, Recovery Position, Major Bleeds and an ask any question session. We currently only offer these course in Essex, London and the Home Counties.
