For the continued safety of staff and students in line with recent changes to Coronavirus restrictions, the following measures are in place:

  • All students are required to wear masks indoors
  • PPE including masks and gloves are available at our classes for students
  • Temperature screening will take place for all people entering our training venues
  • No contact first aid training: this means students will not be required to practice first aid techniques on other students or staff, only on themselves or a manikin. For example bandaging, CPR, recovery position and use of EpiPens will not be conducted on others. Students will be directed not to breathe into a manikin at this time.
  • Increased cleaning of our equipment after every class
  • Alcohol based hand sanitiser is available throughout the venue for use upon arrival, during class and departure
  • We discard all bandages, dressings or other class consumables at the end of the class and they are not re-used
