Training During Covid-19

Please click here to see the current CPR advice during COVID-19

On 21st May the HSE updated its advice around First Aid during the COVID-19 Pandemic and specifically about first aid cover and requalifying first aiders. This advice can be found in full on the HSE Web Site at

Essentially, if you are open for business, you still have a legal duty to your staff and visitors to ensure you have sufficient first aid cover for the activities that you undertake. You may need to review your first aid needs assessment, particularly if you have reduced cover due to furloughed staff, or if you cannot access first aid training.  

For England, the HSE has allowed certificates to be extended to 30th September 2020 for anyone due to requalify after 16th March 2020, there are conditions attached to this (see link above) and requalification must take place before the September date.

For Wales and Scotland, a date has not been set yet for requalification deadlines.

Annual Refresher Training should still take place but using online training for this is acceptable if face-to-face training cannot easily be accessed.
