Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have provided further guidance on First Aid Qualifications.
For anyone who is required to renew their First Aid qualification from the 16th March 2020 and is unable to access a course, we are providing a FREE eLearning course that will be recognised by all National Associations.
The First Aid Extension eLearning is a 15 minute programme, which requires both your full name and National Association membership number. After completion of the course, your attendance will be communicated to your National Association and your record updated.
This online resource acts as an extension and is not a replacement for a face to face First Aid programme. The HSE will be allowing extensions up until the 30th September 2020 and would expect within this time period, a renewal course to be attended.

During the COVID-19 period specific guidelines have been provided for First Aiders and we recommend that all First Aiders read and follow the advice from the Resuscitation Council (UK).
