First Aid at Work Annual Refresher (QAR)

HSE guidelines state that employers should ensure their first aiders remain competent to perform their role. As such, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training to practise their skills and update their knowledge on the latest first aid procedures.

Intended Audience

The First Aid at Work Annual Refresher (QAR) qualification is specifically designed to allow qualified first aiders to update their first aid skills yearly, until requalification training is required.

Course OverviewQualification Specification

Over a half day period, Learners will leave with a renewed confidence having had the opportunity to practise essential first aid procedures, including: managing an unresponsive casualty, CPR, wounds and bleeding, shock and more. For a more detailed overview of the topics covered, please download the Qualification Specification.

This qualification can be delivered as a standalone course (minimum of 3 hours) or as a 'bolt on' (1.5 hours excluding breaks) to other first aid qualifications that share the same assessment criteria. For further information on adding a 'bolt on' to your first aid qualifications, please contact us on 0845 644 3305 and we will be happy to help.
