Annual Refresher Course for First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders


Although it is not mandatory, the HSE strongly recommended that HSE qualified First Aider’s and Emergency First Aider’s undertake an annual refresher course in order to keep their skills up to date and refreshed.

The qualification period for both groups of First Aiders is three years. It was felt that this period was too long without any additional training.


A minimum of three hours, consisting of theoretical and practical activities.
