First Aid Skills Update

If it’s been almost 12 months since your last first aid course and you thankfully not had the opportunity to put your skills into practice, then you may be feeling less confident if an emergency was to arise. Don’t worry; our 3 hour First Aid Skills Update course will refresh your memory and give you the practice to ensure you feel confident as a first aider.

Who is it for?

This course is for those who have attended a more comprehensive first aid training course (CIEH Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work or Requalification) in the previous 12 months.

What will you learn?

This course provides delegates with an opportunity to practise and update their skills through a combination of informal training and practical scenarios. The course will ensure delegates are confident to:

    • Assess the situation in an emergency


    • Administer first aid to a casualty who is unconscious and/or in seizure


    • Administer Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation


    • Administer first aid to a casualty who is wounded or bleeding and/or in shock


    • Recent changes in practice or procedures


    • Other topics highlighted by delegates


What our clients day

“Really good refresher course, after not using my first aid skills since my last course this gave me a good reminder of things I had forgotten.” Kirsten Woodward, Coleman Insurance


This course is not formally assessed but delegates must be able to demonstrate competence in order to receive a certificate of attendance.

Course details

This course is delivered over a 3 hour program and can be run in-house for up to 12 delegates at a time. Alternatively, we regular run open courses at the Ouch Training centre in Wimborne. We advise delegates to wear comfortable clothing as this course involves practical activities.
