ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

During the 3 years the qualification is held with EMT Academy, students may contact us at any time for any guidance or queries they may have in relation to being a First Aider.

In addition EMT Academy provides a reminder service where the company or student will be contacted 6 months before the end of their 3 year qualification, to ensure they can arrange requalification before their certification expires.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revised First Aid Guidance, October 2009, strongly recommends that first-aiders that hold the First Aid at Work Qualification undertake annual refresher training, over half a day.
