This course will refresh your Senior First Aid skills and requalify you for another three years.
The Senior First Aid training course provides you with the knowledge and practical skills to provide first aid treatment for a broad range of emergencies until the arrival of professional medical help.
Studies of skill and knowledge retention of trained people have shown that performance declines significantly if regular practice is not undertaken. Royal Life Saving recommends that all professional first aid qualifications are updated on a regular basis.
