• We are now able to deliver first aid training during covid across the board to any sector that requires it.
• This can take the form of safe first aid courses in a classroom based delivery or as a blended learning approach where students do some training online and just the required practical elements in the classroom.
• All our first aid training during covid has been risk assessed and is in line with current best practice and government guidance around infection control and social distancing
We look forward to moving ever closer towards normality with our valued clients and make safe first aid courses
Choice Medics first aid training during covid aim to support the healthcare of the nation, so the safety and wellbeing of everyone is our paramount concern. We constantly monitor government advice and have listed some of our safety measures and information about our risk assessments below. We have conducted a risk assessment of our training venue to determine the maximum safe capacity to be able to adhere to social distancing.
If a delegate has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. new persistent cough, high temperature, loss or change to sense of smell or taste) they must not attend training. We will arrange a stress free change of date to a future course.
We have social distancing measures between everyone at all times during the course and require the same of delegates during breaks. To do this we have reduced class sizes. Some first aid training during covid will now take place on line or will be blended.
There is hand sanitisation available and regular hand-washing protocols in place.
We maintain our rigorous manikin cleaning protocols.
We have altered our training practical sessions so that trainers and delegates don’t need to come into direct contact with each other and can remain socially distanced.
We will continue to provide gloves for relevant practical sessions.
We will provide all delegates with disposable face masks as part of their training packs which they are welcome to wear if they wish.
All delegates will be requested to register their presence in the buildings using the NHS Covid-19 Contact Tracing App – we recommend that all delegates download this app before they attend the course.
All delegates and employees will be required to wear a face-covering on entry to and while moving around our buildings. Delegates may remove their face-covering when seated for training and the trainer will remove theirs to present the course. The trainer will wear a face-covering if moving around the room to observe training. This will apply in all venues and in all COVID alert levels.
Those who have a medical exemption will not be required to wear a face-covering, you can find out more about exemptions on the government website as well as download and print exemption cards should you wish to do so.
We are following advice from Public Health England and will continue to maintain a social distance and rigorous cleaning and sanitisation protocols which is why delegates do not need to wear face-coverings while seated in the training room.
We will supply each delegate with a disposable face masks as part of their training pack which may be used in training or can be kept for use as a first aider.
