Our 2-day First Aid Response Refresher course is designed to maintain the skills and update First Aid Responders about potential changes in regulations and laws regarding first aid. 

A First Aid Responder may be a healthcare practitioner, or a member of the public who has undertaken a First Aid Response course incorporating the Cardiac First Response standard. 

In addition to CFR skills, the First Aid Responder possesses defined skills in the further management of a patient who has become suddenly ill or injured in the pre-hospital environment until the arrival of emergency medical services. The First Aid Responder is able to assess and manage these patients in accordance with PHECC clinical practice guidelines (CPGs).

This refresher course for the First Aid Responder has to be followed every 2 years in order to remain certified.

Who should Attend this course

Anyone who needs to re-certify as a first aid responder.


People with a valid QQI level 5 Occupational First Aid that needs to be renewed can follow this First Aid Response refresher course.

Following successfully completing this refresher course, their Occupational First Aid certificate will be exchanged for a First Aid Response certificate.
