If the original qualification is still valid or a requalification course can be completed within one calendar month beyond the original qualification expiry date then it is posible to attend a 12 hour (2 day) First Aid at Work Requalification course.
If the original qualification will have expired by more than one calendar month then you must attend the full 18 hour (3 day) First Aid at Work qualification.
The content of this course is exactly the same as the full 18 hour (3 day) first aid at work qualification but it is covered in a shorter 12 hour (2 day) course.
It is only possible to attend this course if it will be completed no more than one calendar month beyond the expiry of the original qualification.
Please check before booking that the current qualification is of the correct type and validity.

NPT have a highly qualified and experienced team and therefore the possibilities are endless:
- CPR & AED (Defibrillator)
- Catastrophic Bleeding
- Oxygen Administration
- Anaphylaxis and Adrenaline Auto-Injectors (e.g. Epipen)
We can work with you to design and deliver the precise training that you require.
The HSE suggested course content for annual refresher training includes:
- Acting safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency.
- Dealing with an unconscious casualty
- Administering CPR
- Dealing with bleeding
- Dealing with shock
These subjects can be amended or added to depending on the risks identified in the workplace.
They can also easily be incorporated into site based training exercises.
A robust emergency plan is an important part of health and safety considerations for Heritage, Conservation and Ecology organisations. Workers in these industries will typically either be faced with:
a) A longer wait for the emergency services to arrive on scene
b) Conducting at least some of the casualty evacuation themselves
North Pennines Training can assist with the design and implementation of emergency plans and also conduct training to test (and practice) emergency plans.
Due to the nature of our work we get to play with a lot of kit. We also hear a lot of feedback on our courses about which kit has worked really well and which should be avoided. Based on this knowledge we have selected particular items of kit that we know work well and we can now supply these items to our clients. These include:
- Bespoke AED (defibrillator) kits designed for harsh environments
- Trauma Dressings
- Blizzard Casualty Protection Blankets
- Celox Haemostatic Dressings
