For the continued safety of staff and students in line with current COVID settings, the following measures are in place:

  • PPE including masks and gloves are available at our public classes for students
  • All students are required to wear masks during any assessments that prevent them from maintaining 1.5m distance from another student
  • 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 not be directed to breathe into a manikin at this time.
  • Thorough cleaning of all equipment after every class
  • Alcohol based hand sanitiser is available throughout the venue for use upon arrival, during class and on departure
  • We discard all bandages, dressings or other class consumables at the end of the class and they are not re-used
