First Aid Annual Refresher Training The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly advises that individuals holding First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work qualifications complete an annual, half-day (3 hour) refresher training session. For HSE recommendations, click here. Although not mandatory, the refresher training will help qualified first-aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up to date with any changes to first-aid procedures. Following HSE’s recommendations, we have created a new online, First Aid Annual Refresher module, to support qualification holders during this challenging period. The refresher can be completed in the safety of your own home, carries 3 CPD points, and meets HSE’s advised annual refresher requirements.
