Guideline to Update your First Aid in Sportsync

The first aid need to renew every 2 years in Singapore.

In Singapore, the first aid training with Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certification requires renewal every two years. This requirement ensures that individuals who are trained to administer first aid and use an AED stay up-to-date with the latest techniques and protocols in life-saving interventions.

Renewing first aid certification with AED involves attending a refresher course that provides participants with updated knowledge and skills. These courses typically cover a range of topics, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques, proper use of an AED, managing choking incidents, and basic first aid procedures for various injuries and medical emergencies.

The renewal process enables individuals to review and reinforce their understanding of essential first aid concepts, such as assessing a casualty, applying appropriate first aid interventions, and recognizing signs of cardiac arrest. It also allows participants to familiarize themselves with any advancements or changes in first aid practices that may have occurred since their initial certification.

Regular renewal of first aid certification helps ensure that individuals are equipped to respond effectively and confidently during emergency situations. The two-year timeframe strikes a balance between maintaining the currency of knowledge and skills while accommodating the practicalities of attending refresher training.

By renewing their first aid certification every two years, individuals demonstrate their commitment to providing safe and effective assistance in emergencies. This requirement aligns with international best practices in first aid training and helps create a highly prepared and capable community of first responders in Singapore.

It’s worth noting that the specific requirements for first aid certification and renewal may vary over time and across different jurisdictions. Therefore, it is always advisable to consult the relevant authorities or training providers in Singapore for the most accurate and up-to-date information on first aid and AED certification requirements.
