The criteria for refresher courses remain the same as previously, the learner must already hold the Unit Standards they are refreshing.

Refresher training is not a legal requirement; however, it is strongly recommended to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety Legislation and its industry "good practice" guidelines.

It is generally seen as good work practice that trainees refresh these unit standards every 2 years.  Duration of this course is 3 hours and will cover the unit Standards and a practical exercise to reinforce the trainee's knowledge on using Fire Extinguisher correctly.
