UPDATE 1st June 2020: All face to face First Aid Training will now be No Contact First Aid Training.

Students undertaking face to face First Aid training in classrooms will practice and demonstrate their learning on themselves, or on a manikin. Students will no longer practice on other students or staff.

We have also implemented additional infection control practices such as: 

  • Reducing class sizes by 50% allowing for social distancing (maximum 12 students per public class)
  • Temperature screening of all visitors to our venue upon arrival
  • Alcohol based hand sanitiser available throughout the venue, for use upon arrival, during class and departure

Click here for more information on our infection control protocols implemented for all first aid training courses.

For a limited time only, all First Aid training will come with access to our Infection Control eLearning course that participants can complete online in just 45 minutes.

Students will receive a link to the course on their student readiness page.

This course provides practical advice for you and your workplace teams to follow to help reduce the spread of infection such as Coronavirus.
