Course Description

The Annual First Aid Refresher Course is designed to provide individuals who have previously completed a comprehensive first aid training program with an opportunity to refresh and update their knowledge and skills in first aid. This course is typically recommended for individuals who hold a valid first aid certification and need to renew their certification on an annual basis.

The course aims to reinforce and build upon the fundamental principles and techniques of first aid, ensuring that participants stay up to date with the latest best practices and guidelines. The content covered in the Annual First Aid Refresher Course may vary depending on the specific training provider or certifying body, but it typically includes the following components:

  1. Review of Basic First Aid Concepts: Participants will review the fundamental principles of first aid, including the assessment of the scene and the safety of the rescuer, the primary survey, and the principles of ABC (Airway, Breathing, Circulation) in assessing and managing emergencies.
  2. CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Update: Participants will refresh their knowledge and skills in performing CPR and using an AED to respond effectively to cardiac emergencies.
  3. First Aid for Common Injuries and Illnesses: The course will cover a range of common injuries and illnesses that require first aid intervention. This may include topics such as bleeding control, wound care, burns, fractures, choking, allergic reactions, seizures, and cardiac emergencies.
  4. Update on First Aid Guidelines and Protocols: Participants will receive updates on the latest first aid guidelines, protocols, and best practices. This ensures that they are aware of any changes or advancements in the field and can provide first aid interventions based on the most current evidence-based recommendations.
  5. Scenario-based Training and Practical Skills Practice: The course may include scenario-based training where participants can apply their knowledge and skills in simulated emergency situations. This helps to reinforce their ability to respond effectively in real-life emergencies. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to practice and refine their practical skills, such as bandaging, splinting, and administering first aid treatments.
  6. First Aid Equipment and Resources: The course may provide information on the proper use and maintenance of first aid equipment and resources, including first aid kits, emergency response plans, and communication devices.
  7. Discussion and Q&A Sessions: Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions, ask questions, and clarify any doubts or concerns related to first aid procedures and practices.

Upon completion of the Annual First Aid Refresher Course, participants should have updated their knowledge and skills in first aid, ensuring that they are competent and prepared to respond to emergencies effectively.

Voices of Trust and Success

I can’t believe how much I learned about mental health in just one day. The course is really interesting and very informative - Lou teaches in a way that enables plenty of interaction and discussion between the learners, breaking down any stigma people may have about talking about mental health issues. I now think very differently about how a person may be thinking or feeling, and I am mindful of their words and actions and how it could be a warning sign or a cry for help. Being a mental health first aider means I could make a difference to someone who is struggling. That is a massive and personal thing to me.

I have been singing her praises and we're already booked in for our First Aid at work and safeguarding training.

An excellent course that was informative and well taught. Louise did a brilliant job of explaining all areas of First Aid-what we needed to do and why which massively helped the learning experience and my ability to retain life saving information. I would highly recommend this course.

Emergency First Aid at Work

Katie Iles, The SeaChange Trust

From the start to finish Louise was informative, practical and interesting. With her extensive background and experience within the medical industry including A an E, she was able to pitch real scenarios at us regardless of the nature of our business or employment which made the whole day much more relevant. Very Highly recommended to anyone either refreshing or starting First Aid for the first time and I wouldn't hesitate to offer her and Madeleys First Aid Plus services to anyone who needs First Aid qualifications.

First Aid at Work

Phil Rowley, Rowley Racing

Louise came highly recommended for Mental Health First Aid training and after a chat with her, I quickly realised she was definitely the right fit for me and my team. Louise was efficient, patient (7 rather chatty women), friendly and tremendously knowledgable which made the course one of the best training sessions I have ever been on. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and nearly three weeks later, we are still talking about the training and more importantly, putting it into practice. I feel fortunate to have found someone who understood our needs and could deliver so effectively to such a diverse team. Keeping everyone's interest and getting all of us engaged is no meant feat and Lou made it look easy.

I am more confident to help if ever needed, who knew there was a “best side” for the recovery position! Very good information regarding the use of the defib machine, I’d be confident to use it if ever needed!
