COVID UPDATE

From all the staff at HEADS Training we hope you are all safe and well and things where possible for you are improving and returning to normality.

It’s been a testing time for all organisations over the last three months with the ongoing pandemic. HEADS Training has been working towards putting safe measures in place so its training courses can start to be facilitated after the summer.

HEADS Training has been working with Qualsafe and Ofqual who are the awarding and accrediting bodies for First Aid Training nationally. Advice has been taken and support given by the bodies including information on safe practice, risk assessments, PPE, and social distancing.  HEADS is now in a position to be able to safely facilitate its training courses starting in August/September 2020.

The Awarding bodies in collaboration with the government and HSE have come to the decision to extend those people whose first aid certificates that expired after the 16th March 2020 as long as they requalify by the 30th September 2020.

Although this is good news, it’s going to be very difficult for some people to access the training before the 30th September, especially if you are working in an educational setting.

HEADS Training is trying to accommodate this demand by facilitating a high number of courses starting in September 2020, so people can re-gain their qualifications by the 30th September.

HEADS are also following strict advice from the Government and the Health and Safety Executive, for further information please see the links below:
