Resumption of Training
We are pleased to announce that from the 1st July 2020 we will be resuming training on a phased basis both here at Canberra House and ‘on site’ at your location if required.
We have implemented some important changes, for both your safety and our instructors.
We will continue to carefully monitor the Government and Health & Safety Executive guidance issued as to how we deliver our courses to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus, our procedures and risk assessments will be continually adapted in line with any changes.
How will we make our training safe for everyone?
Please be assured that the highest levels of infection prevention and control will be in place when we restart our training.
Some additional measures we have introduced include;
- Social distancing seating plans
- Additional manikin safety procedures
- Individual delegates PPE training kits including (hand sanitiser, face shield, pen, manuals, gloves, bandage & sling)
- Solo practical training sessions and assessment procedures inline with The First Aid Quality Partnership and First Aid Awarding Organisation Forum statement & Guidance to maintain social distancing.
The full list of additional measures and copies of our Risk Assessments are available on request so please do not hesitate to contact us.
Current First Aid training certificate expiry dates, extended due to the pandemic including Paediatric First Aid will expire on the 30th September 2020.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) announced that if your First aid at work or Emergency First Aid at work certificate expired on or after the 16th March and you were unable to access training to re-qualify due to the corona virus outbreak, the validity of these certificates could be extended up to 3 months.
The cut off point for re-qualification training to be carried out is the 30th September 2020, after this point your certificate will expire.
The extension applies so long as you are able to:
• Explain why you haven’t been able to re-qualify.
• Demonstrate what steps you have taken to access the training, if asked to do so.
Additional First Aid course dates to be added.
Due to the postponement/cancellation of First Aid courses from March 2020 we have now added additional First Aid at Work, First Aid at Work Re-qualification, Emergency First Aid and Paediatric First Aid course dates to our website. Each course running at our venue will be limited to 7 delegates per course.
To ensure you retain a valid certificate and due the limited numbers of places, we recommend that you reserve your place as soon as possible.
