Here we share an important update from the First Aid Awarding Organisation Forum (FAAOF) and our awarding body Qualsafe Awards about the delivery of First Aid training and education in England.

On 21 May 2020, the FAAOF recommended that first aid training (other than absolutely essential first aid training) should not restart until after the government has changed the COVID-19 alert status to Level 3.

Training must only take place where this is permissible in accordance with the UK Government and devolved administrations or regional restrictions.

Where training takes place, we have regulated guidance  to must be followed. Please contact us for details on 01242 371 999 to support current adjustments in mitigating all risks of possible spread of COVID-19.

From the HSE in respect of first aid cover and qualifications during coronavirus outbreak.

Further to the HSE statement on 16th March regarding extension of existing qualifications. In summary for First Aid qualifications the extension period has been granted to the 30th September in England for those needing annual refresher training. If first aiders are unable to access training face to face during covid-19, HSE supports the use of online refresher training to help keep their skills up to date.

It is important to note that the HSE still strongly recommends practical elements of actual first aid at work in urgency first aid at work and re qualification courses are delivered face-to-face so that the competency of the student can be properly assessed.

Thank you so much to the team at Tidal Training for the Emergency First Aid Training I received yesterday. As a small... business owner I needed to ensure I had someone in the office who could be on hand should something horrible happen to a staff member. I sent 2 colleagues on the training course last year and both were so glad they learnt the techniques to help. As such I decided I would also like to do this not just for work but incase I could be of assistance anywhere else. The training was fantastic and it gave me a feeling of comfort knowing if someone was to get into an accident or have a stroke/heart attack etc I could be of some help in the interim. I would advise that not only businesses do this course but people at home too who could be there if needed for a loved one or passer by. Thanks so much - Alanread more

I never had a first aid training course before so I was a bit uncertain and anxious as to what to expect. Tidal... Training made everything really simple to follow and to the point. It is always so important to know how to help others and I was glad to finish the course confident enough to do so if needed.read more
