First Aid at Work Refresher

Course Aim

This 2 day course (Twelve hour contact time) is designed for anyone who has already sat an FAW and wishes to re-qualify.

In the UK approximately 30,000 people sustain a cardiac arrest outside hospital and before the emergency medical services are able to attend, therefore if members of the public have more understanding of first aid, it possible that more lives could be saved.


The course can be conducted within your own premises, to a maximum of 10 delegates, or alternatively you could be added to one of our open courses run at a designated venue.  A suitable training area must be free from distractions and have an area for practicing activities.

Requirements for training

Previous experience of at least one FAW is required for this course and needs to be attended while the current FAW is in date.
