2 day, maximum 12 delegates per course

This qualification is based on the HSE training standard for delivery of first aid at work courses for the purpose of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (Northern Ireland 1982).

The course is designed to enable delegates to attain knowledge and competencies needed to deal with a range of emergency situations. Delegates should be able to demonstrate practical application of safe, prompt and effective first aid in an emergency situation. This course caters for higher risk environments.

Who Should Attend

This course is for delegates who currently hold a first aid at work qualification and can demonstrate attendance of an annual refresher for each of the 3 years between full courses (either with Posturite or another training provider).

Where no evidence of refresher training is produced, delegates would need to attend a 3 day course. The 28 day period of grace following certificate expiry will no longer exist, once certificates expire, delegates are no longer qualified.

However should the delegates current certificate have expired, the delegate will be required to attend a first aid at work 3 day course.
