For the continued safety of staff and students in line with the reopening roadmap, the following measures are in place:

  • As of Saturday 30th October all students visiting our public training venues must present evidence they are fully vaccinated, unless they have evidence of a medical exemption
  • All students are required to wear masks in classes, both public and onsite
  • All staff have been fully vaccinated against COVID
  • We strongly encourage COVD vaccination for students
  • Vaccinations will be required for students from 26th November onwards at our public classes, this date is likely to be brought forward
  • PPE including masks and gloves are available at our public classes for students
  • Small class sizes apply to ensure density requirements are met

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
