Who is this course aimed at?
The First Aid Refresher course is aimed at delegates that have already gained a valid first aid at work certificate, that is about to expire. A copy of your current certificate will need to be provided. HWGTA held Health & Safety Executive approval until the HSE stopped regulating first aid in October 2013. As recommended by the HSE, HWGTA are now a fully approved centre with TQUK – an Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisation.
