GWO First Aid Refresher

Overview

GWO accreditations should be renewed every 2 years. Refresher courses are only available to candidates who are already in possession of a valid, in-date certificate for the course they wish to refresh.

The GWO First Aid Refresher module covers all of the practical and theory skills of the full module to ensure that knowledge of the delegate is up-to-date.

This First Aid module is to review and build on previously gained knowledge and skills through theoretical and practical training so that individuals can administer safe and effective first aid in the renewable energy and wind industries.

Our center is fully equipped with real world training environments designed to make sure delegates are comfortable carrying out First Aid emergency procedures whilst in environments such as the renewable industry.

Prior to completing this course, delegates will complete a medical assessment form to screen any medical issues they may have.

Delegates must be aged 18+ and should have a good level of English. Assessment for the GWO Basic Safety Training Package will consist of a practical and written multiple choice assessment.

This module covers the importance of carrying out first aid in a safe and sound manner, in accordance with the legislative requirements of their geographic location and according to European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines.

Delegates will identify and explain normal function, normal signs and symptoms of serious and minor injuries and illness related to the human body, as well as being able to demonstrate the correct use of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and other first aid equipment in a first aid scenario.

Delegates should complete the rest of their GWO Basic Safety Training:
