The Level 3 Award in Annual Refresher course is designed for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary or community activities, who require refresher training to continue to provide basic first aid to people in a variety of emergency first aid situations.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Formative assessments – a range of informal assessment procedures will be employed by the Trainer during the learning process to measure each LearnerлЊs knowledge, skills and understanding of the course syllabus.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be presented with an industry leading and nationally recognised QA Level 3 Award First Aid at Work Annual Refresher certificate which satisfies legal obligations for training under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and which demonstrates staff competence, creating a safer and more efficient workplace.
Keep Safe Solutions’ QA Level 3 in First Aid at Work Annual Refresher ensures qualified first aider’s competence is maintained. There first aid qualification may be used towards other qualifications at the same and higher level, plus aid career progression in a relevant profession.
A viable ‘next step’ for first aiders (once competence has been refreshed) would be for learners to attend QA Train the Trainer in First Aid at Work course – an Ofqual regulated and nationally recognised qualification which allows successful delegates to act as fully qualified first aid instructors.
