St John Cymru – First Aid Update
After a period of enforced closure due to Covid-19 we are pleased to say that St John Cymru are once again able to open their training centres across Wales, with added safeguards being put in place to ensure safe participation for all. These include social distancing measures and enhanced hygiene & cleaning procedures.
In addition to this, those who hold a first aid certificate that expires on or after the 16th March, and cannot access requalification training because of Covid-19, may qualify for an extension. This applies to First Aid at Work (FAW), Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW), Paediatric First Aid (EACH). However, HSE recommends that those with existing certificates arrange for requalification training at the earliest available opportunity to ensure your organisation and workforce is up to date with its training qualifications.
As Wales’s leading first aid charity, St John Cymru have a wealth of experience in delivering quality training courses to thousands of organisations throughout Wales. This includes bespoke sport first aid courses that can be tailored around the needs of individual sports organisations & associated clubs.
