Annual Update Training – ½ day
Latest legislation states although it is ‘Highly Recommend’ that candidates renew their qualification annually, it is not a legal requirement – however, the law does state that it is an employer’s responsibility to ensure that First Aiders remain ‘Competent’ within their role as a First Aider. The question is: ‘if no retraining is done within the 3 years, how can someone be ‘competent” and therefore the employer is liable. A cost-effective way is to re-train and refresh on an intensive ½ day course.
