COronavirus and FIRST AID
Training is available
Updates January 4th, 2021
Coronavirus Covid-19 has undoubtedly made a huge impact on the world in 2020 and 2021, and now more than ever, we need to be taking care of ourselves and our neighbours in a safe and controlled way.
I am now offering blended training, where delegates will study sessions online, answering a multiple choice quiz covering what they've studied. There is a minimum pass mark in order to progress onto a shortened practical session with me of 80%. This reduces the amount of time we spend together face-to-face training. The number of delegates trained per session will depend on premises size.
Training whilst in tier 4 is only permitted in registered business premises for key workers (teachers, carers, NHS staff etc). I am unable to enter anyone residential home to train, even though you may work from home.
Non-essential training and requalifications should be postponed until Wales leaves tier 4.
The Health and Safety Executive and The Resuscitation Council UK have both issued statements regarding training at this time.
HSE - First aid qualifications in the workplace: "FAW or EFAW certificates that expired after 16 March 2020 can remain valid until 31 October 2020 or 6 months from date of expiry, whichever is later. All requalification training for these certificates should be completed by 31 March 2021."
To qualify for the extension, you must be able to explain why you haven’t been able to requalify and demonstrate what steps you have taken to access the training if asked to do so.

Think of first aid training like car insurance. You need to have it, just in case... but hopefully, you'll never need to use it!
At Blaise First aid, I believe that first aid training should be readily available and affordable to everyone.
