Description Following the change in first aid training in 2008, which reduced the 4 day First Aid at Work (FAAW) training to a 3 day First Aid at work (FAW) course, the Health & Safety strongly recommended that annual skills updates were carried out by all first aiders to address the concerns regarding skills fade.
The annual skills update (ASU) course is a half day (3-4 hour) refresher course which has been designed to address this issue, covering:
assessment of the situation
unconscious casualties
wounds and bleeding
bandaging and slings
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)
and an AED demonstration.
