UPDATE 06/04/2021 – Reminder that the extension granted to all EFAW / FAW and Paediatric certificates, ended on 31st March. Get in touch now to arrange your next course at your venue or one of ours.


At the time of writing – The provision of first aid qualifications can continue to be delivered in line with existing COVID secure guidelines. If you or your business require first aid training it is permissible for us to deliver it in a safe environment. For the required practical face to face aspects of training, we provide all required PPE and individual student packs. All manikins used have one way air flow, individual sterilised faces and can be monitored and assessed remotely. We can discuss ways to minimise face to face contact time by utilising ‘blended’ and ‘remote’ training.
