Employers are legally required to ensure their first aiders are competent and maintain their skills throughout the three years in which their certificates are valid.
At Brookes as a matter of best practice First Aiders and Lifesavers are expected to attend an annual update once they have completed their initial training, except in the year when refresher training is due.
This three-hour refresher course provides First Aiders and Lifesavers with an opportunity to practise and update their skills while their first certificates are valid. There is also the opportunity to feedback on any concerns you have about how first aid is working at Brookes. Annual updates are run across all sites.
This course is paid for by HR. However if you are unable to attend a course we require a minimum of 5 working days' notice of non-attendance, otherwise a cancellation charge will be made covering the full course fees.
