Annual Skills Update
Research has shown that following training, the practical skills of first-aiders can deteriorate.
From 1st October 2009, HSE has introduced a strong recommendation that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training during any First Aid at work certification period. Although not mandatory, this will help qualified first-aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up to date with any changes to first aid procedures.
