First Aid Courses and Covid-19

Video Transcript

Do you have staff who need first aid retraining during lockdown?

Perhaps they are still working in a supermarket or other essential service, such as a school or nursery caring for key workers’ children.

Well, don’t worry both the HSE and the Department of Education have extended all first aid certificates until the 31st of september 2020.

However, although your staff can’t formally retrain, we do strongly advise they refresh their skills.

And we have a blended e-learning and zoom refresher course perfect for this.
Just contact us for more information.
