Starting in June, we have returned to providing our training courses in their traditional “face to face” style. We have had to plan these very carefully and have prioritised in a number of areas, one is obviously everyone’s safety [you can read more about our approach here], but we have also been prioritising “essential workers” for our courses.
But now, actually, from 3rd July, we are starting to run our “open” courses for those that need to maintain or gain a first aid qualification. Initially, there will only be a limited number of courses, and spaces are limited but we are glad to be able to offer our course to the wider community and get back to what we love, helping people build their confidence in life-saving skills.
We are monitoring government advice and that of our awarding bodies, and may, therefore, have to change details but so far our approach to restarting our training has worked well.
We have in place a number of measures directed to avoiding cross-contamination such as sanitizers, gloves, safety glasses, and additional training resources to minimise sharing. You can read all the detail here, but for now, the main change is that we are running the courses at an alternative venue in the Southend area.
To ensure that we have plenty of space for social distancing, and areas where we can do training outside, we are running the following courses at Rochford Rugby Club instead of our normal venue at Westleigh Baptist Church.
3rd July- Emergency First Aid at Work [EFAAW].
Emergency First Aid at work training from Lazarus Training is a one-day first aid training course that meets the Health and Safety Executive’s requirements for the workplace. Almost every workplace needs to make first-aid arrangements to care for a member of staff taken ill or injured at work. For most workplaces, the Emergency first aid at work course will meet these requirements. You can read more about this popular course here.
16th & 17th July- Paediatric First Aid [12 hour]
Paediatric first aid training is required by many working with children. This 12-hour course is designed for people who have responsibility for children within their work duties. Updated to reflect both the latest medical practice but also the current guidance from EYFS and OFSTED, this course is essential for childminders and those working in early years settings. You can read more here.
20th July- Emergency First Aid at Work [EFAAW]
As above, but you can read more here.
All courses are being run at Rochford Rugby Club, but you need to pre-book via our office on 0800 242 5210 or firstname.lastname@example.org . You can get directions from our office team or using the map below.
