1st Response training is valid for three years from the date that you complete the course. After this time, you can attend our 1st Response Refresher course to ensure your knowledge is up to date.
If you attended an external first aid course in place of 1st Response, you can take this refresher when your qualification expires. Your training will then be up to date for three more years. We recommend that volunteers who completed 1st Response more than three-and-a-half years ago attend the full 1st Response course, or equivalent first aid training, to refresh their skills.
Due to covid restrictions our training has had to change slightly. Our course will now consist of 3 parts:
1. Pre Course reading – sent on registration
2. Course – via Zoom
3. *When we can Face to face training – Practical elements including bandaging, slings, CPR and Recovery position
Register now and your pre-course reading and Zoom login details will be sent to you
