The new First Aid qualifications include written assessments (multiple choice papers). Should you require any special arrangements with regards to completing the assessments due to medical issues, please contact Direct Action Training to discuss these issues before the day of the course.
As there are practical floor work requirements on all courses, please make sure you wear suitable loose fitting clothing.
The course requires 100% attendance and delegates unable to attend part or the entire course, please contact Direct Action Training to make alternative arrangements.
For the Level 3 First Aid At Work refresher course only, each delegate must bring their latest ‘First Aid At Work’ certificate (issued by a HSE approved training provider). To qualify for this course, this certificate must still be in date, if this is not the case, they are not eligible for this ‘requalification’, and need to attend the initial Level 3 First Aid At Work to regain the qualification.
Lunch is not provided; therefore it is advisable to bring a packed lunch.
We did our first aid training with Rebecca on Saturday 18th July. In the midst of the Covid crisis I felt completely at ease.
Rebecca was very professional and made us feel extremely comfortable. We were able to comply with the government guidelines with regards to spacing. We all had individual hand sanitisers, tissues, gloves, masks and face shields for the mannequins when performing the rescue breathes.
I didn’t feel the course was compromised at all due to the unusual situation, the course content was fantastic and beyond any other one day first aid course I’d done previously, we just couldn’t work too closely together!
I would definitely do other face to face courses during this strange time.
