Qualification renewal is crucial, whether it is for first aid, fire safety, or food hygiene, not only to keep your qualifications up to date but your knowledge too. You know how to get a certificate, but did you know it’s important to keep it current?
Why is it important to renew?
1. The guidelines and procedures can change
Each year, new medical advancements are made, guidelines are revisited and procedures can be updated or amended. To stay on top of all changes, regular training renewal is vital. You don’t want to perform a previous version of a procedure if there is a newer, more effective version available, especially when it comes to life-saving procedures
2. To continually refresh skills and knowledge
Even if only a few details have changed since you last did a training course, if you’re not performing first aid and CPR on a regular basis you’re likely to start to forget little things.
Keep your skills and knowledge refreshed and stay in practice by renewing within the recommended three-year time frame for first aid or every 12 months for the CPR component.
3. Stay confident
It’s one thing to know the techniques, but it’s another to have the confidence to apply them when the time comes. Regular training ensures that you will always have the confidence (along with those life-saving skills) to act quickly and effectively when faced with a potentially stressful medical situation.
