COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We are advised by the Federation of First Aid Training Organisations to postpone all First Aid Training Courses with immediate effect.

To enable customers to continue to comply with Health & Safety regulations, the HSE has granted a 3 month extension to First Aid at Work certification for delegates who have had courses postponed, or are having to book courses beyond the expiry date due to the Coronavirus emergency.

Statement from HSE:

”If requalification training is prevented for reasons associated directly with Coronavirus, or by complying with related Government advice, it is reasonable and practical to extend the validity of current certificates by up to 3 months. Anyone taking advantage of this extension should be able to describe clearly their reasons for delaying requalification training and demonstrate steps they have taken to undertake the training, if required.”

We will review this current situation regularly and keep you informed of any developments.
