It is vitally important that a First Aider is competent, and we aim to ensure that this is the case with refresher training on a yearly basis. The benefits that come from keeping your training up to date are numerous; not only are you more capable of dealing with a situation should it arise, you will also be more confident knowing that you have the skills to take care of those in need. Regular training brings competence, gives confidence and saves lives.
With businesses across the South East regularly updating their training, it makes sense that your business should keep on top of it. We love sharing our knowledge and are enthusiastic to keep your staff up to date.
What is included in the Annual Refresher Course?
As you are already qualified, you should not be learning new things, but refreshing your existing understanding and knowledge. This will include reminding you about the basics of assessing the scene of an emergency, administering first aid to a casualty and dealing with an unconscious patient. We will make sure that your CPR is of a high standard, and check that you are able to put someone in the recovery position. On top of this, we will go over the control of wounds and bleeding, how to treat a casualty for shock, what should be in a first aid kit and the hygiene surrounding it, and we will cover HSE reporting. This is also a great opportunity to ask questions of qualified professionals if there is anything that you are uncertain of, or would like clarified. We are here to make sure that you are confident in your knowledge.
If you agree that you and your staff could do with annual reminders of your training, do not hesitate to contact us today.
